Wise men from east worshipped a child
11:07 pm jst
10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming
to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their
treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. (Matthew 2)
from east searched for a baby by means of horoscope. At that era, the horoscope was so significant that they had been learning
and leaning on for decision making.
Some of us are interested in the horoscope for knowing in the future. Even
some Christians are referring to the horoscope to know what is going on.
But this is true that those wise men worshipped
a baby. God outweighs the horoscope.

People in Japan exchange new year card in January 1st up to 7th.
This is our custom that we write thank
you card for the past year and greet the new year to family, friends, colleagues, and relatives.
I sense that you wonder why we don't greet one another via email. Yes, electric transactions are so fast to greet that we'd better doing it.
Even internet era, people need "Personal touch" to communicate
each other. You hand your card and send it to your friend by post man. Or you receive a card by the post man. How nice of
us to keep in touch with!

No selfishness Until...
9:10 pm jst
the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings
for themselves.(Genesis 3)
We had no selfishness until such time the eyes of both of them were opened.
of openness, they started to hide themselves so that the selfishness has been growing up
even now. We no longer look
after one another since no honestly and openly confessing to God.
Lord, would you please lead us to humble to face down
to ground and confess you once again.

40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping.“Couldn’t
you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch
and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26)

Hold on to what you have
1:26 am jst
11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will
take your crown. (Revelation 3)
44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of
Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Matthew 24)
We must get ready; we don't know when
it comes so we should hold on to what we have.
Are you ready? This is message from our Lord.
There are many
things we have to do this year 2013. But we have to keep this word.
