Can you believe it is already December? At times this year it felt like the days were dragging, but now we have begun the last month of 2020.
In this last month of the year, I want to focus on the gospel at Christmas. Some have said that Christmas is only a commercial time when retailers take advantage of people and feed greed. While greed is a reality, so is generosity. Negative happens, so why don’t we combat negativity with some positive truth?
The truth is that because we are sinners, Jesus Christ came to earth to be born under humble circumstances. He grew up to die on the cross for our sins. He chose to become a man and suffer the same way we do. The difference is that He never sinned. That is part of the glory John 1:14 is talking about. Due to the grace and truth that comes from God the Father, we can have hope and joy for the future.
If you do not know Jesus Christ according to what the Bible says, then I hope you will seek the truth. I am happy to share what God has taught me.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to a humble birth so I can know grace and truth. Please help me to share this with everyone I meet. I want them to know the joy that only comes from knowing You.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
