A Baby Changes Everything

It is Christmas Eve. Every year I take time on this holy night to reflect and remember why there is Christmas.

In the midst of the all the Christmas preparations and hubbub it's easy to lose sight of what this day is all about. Emmanuel has come. God is with us. HE IS WITH US! How do we get our minds and hearts around this unbelievable gift?

What kind of love gives everything? God gave His only Son. He offered Himself. He came in the form of an infant, placed His life in the hands of a man and a woman. And then, ultimately, He sacrificed His life for ours.

My word for this year is Love. How precious it is to bow before the Lord and remember all that He has done. I long to know Him more deeply, more intimately, and to love, obey, and worship Him. If only I could walk every step with Him in mind, grateful for every breath, every moment, every opportunity. I pray my heart will be filled with the kind of love He offers us.

This Christmas, remember Him and . . . Rejoice.

Grace and peace to you from God,
