Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It tells you what happened, and what will happen. Can you imagine what the first Christmas Eve was like? They were cold, they had been travelling for days, there was no Southwest Airlines, No Greyhound, No Tesla’s, no interstate highways, it was a donkey, and Mary was nine months pregnant. The government on a whim decided there would be a new tax, money they didn’t have… The neighbors already were talking, you can’t hide a baby bump after six months, so the last few months were filled with whispers and finger pointing. While at least the Angel appeared and told Joseph “It’s not what it looks like,” it had to still be a little weird, he was just rolling with it. They finally got to Bethlehem, tried to check in to the Comfort Inn, not a room left, even Motel 6 was full. Not one place to stay, they didn’t know anybody, finally the Innkeeper said they could sleep in the barn. Not the way Mary dreamed of starting motherhood. They had no idea, that one day would change everything, for everyone in the world, forever. Praying that today, in the midst of your last day of work before Christmas, the last-minute shopping, the meal planning and cooking, the Christmas present wrapping, and the children’s anticipation… that you won’t forget what really happened, that changed the world forever. This baby wasn’t like other babies, He is the Son of God, sent to take on himself the sins of the world. Your sin. Without Him, there would be no heaven for you, we are all disqualified, but for His grace. Praying that this Christmas Eve, and the day tomorrow that changed human history, that you will remember, and tell your children, the greatest story ever told. The greatest Christmas gift ever given, His life for yours.
Love you all,
