The Power of God’s Word
hello my name is xochitl Dixon for this Christmas Eve edition of Our Daily Bread I'll be reading the power of God's word
 on Christmas Eve 1968 the Apollo 8 astronauts Frank Borman Jim Lovell and Bill Anders became the first humans to enter lunar orbit as they circled the moon 10 times they shared images of the Moon and the Earth during a live broadcast they took turns reading from Genesis 1
 at the 40th anniversary celebration warm and said we were told that I'm Christmas Eve we would have the largest audience that has ever listened to a human voice and the only instructions that we got from NASA what to do something appropriate the Bible verse is spoken by the Apollo 8 astronauts still plant seeds of Truth into the listening hearts of people who hear the historical recording
 through the prophet Isaiah God says give ear and come to me listen that you may live revealing his free offer of Salvation he invites us to turn from our sin and receive his mercy and forgiveness he declares the Divine authority of his thoughts and his actions which are to vote for us to truly understand still God gives us opportunity to share his life transforming words of scripture which point to Jesus and a firm that she is responsible for the spiritual growth of his people
 Dolly Spirit helps us share the gospel as a father for filled all his promises according to his perfect plan and pace
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from Isaiah 55:6 to 13
 seek the Lord while he may be found call on him while he is near let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts
 let them turn to the Lord and He will have mercy on them and to our God for he will freely pardon
 for my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord as a Heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts
 as a rain in the snow come down from heaven and do not return to it without water in the earth and making it bud and flourish so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater so is my word that goes out from my mouth it will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieved purpose for which I sent it
 you will go out and enjoy and be led forth in peace the mountains and Hills will burst into song before you and all the trees of the field will clap their hands instead of the thornbush will grow the Juniper and instead of briers the Myrtlewood grow this will be for the Lord Renown for Everlasting that will endure forever
let's pray
 Almighty Creator and sustainer the world please give us opportunities daily to share your wisdom in Jesus name we pray amen
