Brief video intro to this year's Christmas Play
Consider this, the person you become will determine what you look like in a few weeks, months, or years. What have you be- come in 2013? Have you gotten bitter or better since the year started? Are you more excited or discouraged since you said “Happy New Year”?
Today is a great day to become who you were created to be. We’ve been taught to “do”, more than “be”, yet those who succeed at anything that matters have “become” and then they do. It may seem inconsequential, or maybe this appears to be a matter of choosing one word over another, but the differences are miles even worlds apart.
Consider the following verse: John 1:12 (KJV Lite), “But as many as received Him, he gave them the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. Note the word “become”. Notice that we were not given power to prove that we are sons of God. The only requirement to “become” is to “Be-lieve”.
Whatever you want to “Be-come” first requires that you “Be- lieve”. People who try to do, then believe have it wrong. I’ve been in that line, trying to accomplish goals by doing first until this revelation began to find a home in my heart. I hope this word will find a home in you heart too so that your Christmas and New Year “becomes” phenomenal, just like you were created to “be”.
