“God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent His One and Only Son into the world so that we might live through Him.” 1 John‬ ‭4:9‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Good morning, Beloved. 

Feeling hopeless?

Lifeless and tired?

Loveless and empty? 

Welcome then, to this powerful day! When The Most High God sent His Jesus to earth, He sent hope and love and life. Stop here and recite John 3:16. 

For God so loved the world 

that He gave His only begotten son,

that whosoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life. 

The next verse continues on to say that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save it. I sigh (sometimes I shudder) when I think of the condemnation and shame that religion and rules often cast down on us, diverting our hearts away from the simplicity of God’s perfect ways. Don’t let this just be another religious holiday season.  

Instead, open your heart and let Christmas change you. 

Let this be a powerful day of reckoning with the simple facts … 

the Christ child from the manger grew,

He took on all our sin and shame,

He conquered death with you and me on His heart,

He took our place.

Ask Him to be the center of your life and fill you with His love. 

Then, look into God’s face and tell Him you have received His most powerful Christmas gift. 

Wake up. 

Receive the Gift. 

This Christmas, I will believe in: God’s Gift. 

I will be thankful for: the simplicity of your ways. 

I will always remember: He came and delivered my eternity.
