I want to challenge you out into the deep waters with Jesus. Don't be content on the shore watching with the crowds from a distance, venture out into the deep. Make a determined effort to experience the power of God yourself; but it only comes when you go out into the deep waters with Jesus. 'When Jesus had finished speaking, He said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep waters, and let down your nets.' (Luke 5.4)

When Jesus told Peter to let down his net, he didn't want to do it, and he had good reason not to. Peter was an expert fisherman; he knew the waters, the fish. However, he did what the Lord said to do despite his own experience and knowledge; and the results were far better than anything he could have ever imagined! The same blessings await you when you obey the Word of the Lord.

The Scripture says in God's presence is fullness of joy; is it any wonder then that Jesus is full of joy? When Jesus met with Jairus' family, He changed the whole family from sadness to joy. And that is exactly what He wants to do today in your life. He will turn your sorrow into joy, your mourning into dancing; He will give you a garment of praise to replace your spirit of heaviness.

Let's face it, things go wrong in life. There is a problem which has come into this man's life. He knows Jesus; he believes in miracles; and now Jesus is standing nearby. The real life of faith, of being a Christian, of receiving forgiveness, healing and deliverance, is in knowing Jesus. It is so simple to know Him. The hymn writer put it so powerfully: 'Just as I am without one plea, but that Thy blood was shed for me... I come.'

Our God, yours and mine, is a God of miracles. A God of power. A God of deliverance. A God of healing. Hallelujah! That is why we have something to rejoice about; something to be excited by.

'The whole multitude sought to touch Him: for there went virtue out of Him, and He healed them all' (Luke 6:19). The people knew that if they came near and touched Him, that Jesus would heal them; they knew that some power, some blessing, would pass from Jesus into them. The Bible says that virtue, power, came out of Jesus and entered into the people: it is the same with you. When you touch Jesus through prayer, His healing power will flow into your body.

Jesus came to bring a message of love, hope, peace and blessing; He shows us how to overcome the evil that is in the world, how to resist temptation. Above all, Jesus came to reconcile us back to God and to each other. The Bible says that God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but that through Him we might find deliverance. Isaiah prophesied, 'The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned... For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given'.

The message of Jesus can bring hope and healing into your life. Jesus is not remote and distant; God sent His Son into the world to live as you live, to experience life as you do; He came down to deliver and set you free. Will you receive His love today? This is the core of the Christmas message: God so loved you, he sent His Only Son, so that you might not perish but have everlasting life.

'Jesus came down and stood in the midst of the people': The message of Christmas has a similarity with Easter. Jesus is not distant; He is not just the Son of God in Heaven, but He came down to us here, on earth; He lived as we live; felt the same emotions; He was despised and rejected; His very Name is Emmanuel, God with us.

Don't be afraid; only believe! If only we could hear the Words of Jesus; in your life, in your problems today, if you will only believe and not be afraid, that problem which looks insurmountable, that situation which appears permanent, will change by the power of Jesus' Name. People may tell you that your problem is too far gone, that it is too late for a miracle; Jairus was told in Mark 5.35, "Don't trouble Jesus anymore, your daughter is dead", but Jesus will say to you, as He said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; only believe".
