God is giving out gifts today as always.
Do you believe it? Do we believe this?
God? Gives us gifts?
He has arrived!
This Son of God, Jesus, is here to gather up the fragments of our little lives, the fragments of our collected and hoarded disappointments and give to us Himself and all the trimmings that come with Him.
Like eternal life.
Like His peace to us now as we live out our daily lives.
Like His Presence to dwell with us.
He is here as Emanuel! God with us!
His gift of eternal life starts today, now. It isn’t something that we need to wait for. We get to live today knowing that it is already a done deal.
His word to the shepherds when the angel of the Lord appeared to them in a field so many years ago is also for us, for our kids, for our grandkids and beyond.
So take this word and run with it. It is yours, ours for the taking and believing and living out.
And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which shall be for all the people for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2: 10-11)
There has been born for you a Savior…
Can’t top that one.
May God or an angel speak to you today that there has been born for you a Savior.
And with that, I add a crispy -clear Merry Christmas!
There! Take that and run with this gift in hand as you go about your day today, as you celebrate this wonderful event – Jesus’ birthday!
