One of the most important aspects to your Christian walk is having a Bible reading program that you stick to faithfully. It is more important to your spiritual health than diet and exercise are to your physical health. So, let me prescribe something for you in 2022.

Christmas Poem

God is with us; this is Christmas. Name Him Jesus; Yahweh saves us! Sunrise above overflowing love down to earth in Christ’s birth. Look from care to see God there. His love for you Has brought him near The flesh He wove  In Mary’s womb was made for holes  by nails by wolves. May all earth's pain from curse be slain, the Law bowed down by Jesus Crown of perfect life. And all the strife From God to man is taken when His life is spent by cross in skin to take our sin.  Skin, flesh and blood the Son of God is Son of Man, the Great I Am. This is the gift Of Christmas. Merry Christmas! #Christmas #ChristmasPoem     :15
