I SO love this from today's Faith Food by Kenneth E. Hagin

"For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell" (Col. 1:19). 
The Word of God plainly teaches that our Redeemer is divine. These divine offices are ascribed to Him: 

Creator (Col. 1:16)
Mediator (1 Tim. 2:4-5)
Head of the Church (Col. 1:16-24)
Savior (2 Peter 3:2)
Judge (2 Tim. 4:1)
Preserver (Heb. 1:1-3)
Life-Giver (John 10:28)
Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36)
Resurrection and Life (John 11:25)

Divine character is ascribed to Christ. Ordinary men are sinners by nature, but Christ Jesus is not an ordinary man. He is: 

Holy by Birth (Luke 1:35)
Righteous (Isa. 53:11)
Faithful (Isa. 11:5)
Truth (John 14:6)
Just (John 5:30)
Guileless (1 Peter 2:22)
Sinless (2 Cor. 5:21)
Spotless (1 Peter 1:19)
Innocent (Matt. 27:4)
Harmless (Heb. 7:26)
Obedient to God (Heb. 5:8-10)
Obedient to Earthly Parents (Luke 2:51)
Zealous (John 2:17)
Meek (Matt. 11:29)
Lowly in Heart (Matt. 11:29)
Merciful (Heb. 2:17)
Patient (Isa. 53:7)
Long-Suffering (1 Tim. 1:16)
Compassionate (Matt. 15:32)
Benevolent (Acts 10:38)
Loving (John 15:13)
Self-Denying (2 Cor. 8:9)
Humble (Phil. 2:5-11)
Resigned (Luke 22:42)
(Luke 23:34)

Confession: Jesus Christ is worthy. Thank God for this Worthy One. Thank God for this Divine One. Thank God that One who is the Creator would come to earth from glory to be the Mediator, the Head of the Church, the Savior, the Judge, the Preserver, the Life-Giver, the Lord and Savior. And thank God, this Worthy One is my Lord. 
As YOU prepare for your Christmas celebrations with friends, family and relatives, make sure that YOU keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas!  How? By meditating on Who He IS! At The Spoken Word Church, for the last several years, we have decorated out Christmas tree with hand-made ornaments that proclaim the many Names and offices of Jesus, the Christ, Who IS King of kings and Lord of lords! Here is a photo from our church Christmas and a song, by Hillsong, called "Jesus, What A Beautiful Name":

Shalom in Him!
