Merry Christmas, dear friends!
As we celebrate this special time of year and all that it means, this has been glowing in my heart:
Jesus came for us.
Jesus came to redeem and rescue us.
Jesus came to live the perfect life we couldn't live, die and take the punishment we deserved, rise triumphant over death, sin, and hell, and call us to Himself.
He is calling us to see our sin and neediness of a Savior, surrender ourselves to Him and trust Him to save us, and live by His life within us.
When we answer this call, we are personally brought into that all-satisfying relationship with Him for which we were created ~ both now and eternally.
In Him we find the answer to our every need, our hearts find their satisfaction, and He is glorified as the world sees how good He is.
What a treasure our Savior has accomplished and given to those who are His!
May our hearts be filled with worshipful gratitude for His coming to ransom us and all it means to us as His own.
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
May your Christmas and year ahead be filled with Jesus and the wonder of being His,
