1 Samuel 12:24
"Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He as done for you."
This verse was recently sent to me in a birthday card. It was one of my favorite gifts! I so desire to fulfill this instruction in my life. What great things He has done for all of us!
This is a wonderful time of year to ponder in our hearts all He has done in sending Jesus to us. He gave His all to become our all in all circumstances of life. I have lived long enough to know He is more than enough no matter what life in this world throws at me. This is not my home. Because of Jesus God became my Father. I belong in heaven with the Trinity, and so do you if you understand Jesus is the Savior of the world. God’s Christmas gift to ALL was coming down to us, because we could not get up to Him.
Take time in this busy season to reverence and love the Gift, and serve Him in truth with all your heart as you ponder in your heart what great things He has done for each one of us.
In His love.
Nothing is more meaningful to me at Christmas than the nativity scene. It reveals how love came down to us all. How can we allow ourselves to be turned away from the true meaning of Christmas by the futility of this world??
