Good morning friend! It’s Christmas Eve and I have a encouraging word for you today. But first, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I also want to encourage you to press into the Lord this year, make Him your number priority, and you will be blessed.
Look at Romans 8:35 with me this morning. Paul writes and says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love? There is no way! Not trouble, nor hard time, not hatred, not even Satan’s schemes. None of this fazes us, because Jesus loves us. Nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow- absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love, because of the way that Jesus has embraced us. God loved us enough to send His very best in a form of a baby. He lived the perfect life, and he willing laid down his life on the cross. He over came sin and death, and he bridge that gap between a Holy God and sinful man. Jesus painted a beautiful picture of who God really is! The baby in the manger took my place on that rugged cross and He showed us all what true love is.
Christmas is so much more than present and food! Don’t get me wrong, I love this time of year and I love the great time around the table. But let’s don’t forget the true meaning of Christmas and don’t forget to give God His praise! Thank you Jesus for your amazing love! Celebrate Him and share Him with a friend. God bless.
