Great night last night! One of our kids and family will not be with us for Christmas (gonna enjoy the in-laws this year). So last evening they were here with us and our other daughter for dinner and a little Christmas celebration. How I do love them! All our kids and their families are such a blessing!
Christmas time has a very special atmosphere. As we remember, it’s beginning was all about God’s love, and that love seems to be in every molecule of air I breathe this season.
Jesus chose to become human and lay aside His divinity, so that He could provide the necessary cleansing forgiveness for our sins thus enabling us to spend eternity with Him. After His painful suffering and death on the cross, He was raised into heaven and sat down at the right hand of the Father. Then He released the Holy Spirit to come to us fulfilling His promise to give us a helper Who provides the potential to live supernatural lives.
God’s love for us is so immense, it would take a huge book to write about all it entails. For now just knowing Jesus came, aware of the huge sacrifice He was making, and the suffering that would come, is a huge declaration of His care and devotion to each one of us. This time of year is a celebration of life, Jesus life, and His love for us.
Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
