We are praying for God’s very best for you and your family this Christmas. We’re also asking Him to answer your prayers and meet your needs. Be encouraged to draw especially close to the Lord by opening your day with some quiet time with God, reading and meditating His Word. This is a time to be grateful for what is truly important–God so loved the world that He sent His only Son to die in your place so that you could be redeemed and become “family” with God. You can have personal fellowship with the creator of the universe. He loves you that much!
He was born in an obscure village,
the child of a peasant woman.
where He worked in a carpenter shop
until He was thirty.
And then for three years
He was an traveling preacher.
from the place where He was born.
He did none of the things
one usually associates with greatness.
He had no credentials but Himself.
turned the political system against Him.
His friends ran away.
He went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.
While He was dying His executioners
gambled for His clothing,
the only property He had on earth.
When He was dead He was laid
in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.
Twenty centuries have come and gone,
and today Jesus is the central figure
of the human race,
the leader of mankind’s progress.
as much as this One Solitary Life.
