I love this season, partly because I like to think back and imagine what it must have been like to be part of the ‘Story’.
What a day that must have been–to realize that the Savior of the World was born as a baby!
Even more: The King of the Universe had become human, and was born into one of the most plain, un-special, un-kingly circumstances possible!
As Paul wrote to the Philippians:
“Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God…” (Philippians 2:6-8)
He came with one purpose: To Die in Our Place–thereby making peace with God possible, forgiveness of our sins, and offering us New Life!
That is love…that is commitment…that is sacrifice!
…and that deserves our thanks, our worship, our praise–our All-Out Celebration!
Jesus’ birth means LIFE for us!
“…I have come that they might have LIFE, and life to the full!” (John 10:10)
LIFE in the here-and-now, and LIFE in eternity!
This Christmas, CELEBRATE JESUS!
Consider and Discuss: In what ways have YOU experienced “LIFE” in Jesus?
Thank Him–with your family–today!
