“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth, peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14 NIV
Christmas provides opportunities to share good will toward men and recognize why sharing the love of God is pleasing to our Savior. He leads us in a prayer of praise, when we have readied our hearts to receive the gift of His amazing love.
God helps us experience the gift He lovingly gave to the world. He humbles our hearts. In moments to handle the happenings of our days, He fills us with peace and allows us to recognize His presence in our lives.
We need Christmas! We need to be led where PRAISE and PEACE will carry us through days of wonder. And, we need to remember; God sent His Son to bring HOPE to our darkened world of sin.
The world will continue to disappoint and frustrate the soul of our strength. But, Jesus will help us overcome! He overcame the cross and returned from death to show God through Him. The tiny baby born to die, lives because of Christmas!
God gave us the gift of His Son. We should take time to reflect on this beautiful season of HOPE. Christ will shine the light of love where darkness cannot hide. HE will help us clearly see the reward of our faithfulness, if we turn from our selfish ways, acknowledge Him as Lord of our lives and love Him with all of our hearts!
Glory to God in the highest! He is near. He is HERE because HE LOVES US!
Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Forgive us when we forget how very much we need YOU. Humble our hearts to remember Your will was fulfilled through the Savior. Guide us through EVERY moment of our days and help us remember why we must always be ready to welcome Christmas. Amen
