Kids are napping and just enjoying the ambiance of silence and christmas lights..reflecting on the sacrificial love of God by sending His son Jesus as a gift to us on Christmas. I cannot imagine what it would be like to give away my kids to save millions of people. But God proves His tender and compassionate love through Jesus. He knew the pain it would bring to Jesus, He knew that carrying the world’s sin on His shoulders would cause Jesus anguish, but He also knew the end to the story. That one day through this sacrificial giving of His Son, that you and I would have a choice to accept it as our payment for our sin, and the joy that brings to Him, was worth the pain and separation. Jesus would lay down His life again and again if He had to..but He only had to do it once..Oh Victory in Jesus!! It’s so easy for me to get lost in the decor of Christmas and gift buying and forget about these moments. To take in the reality that Jesus was born to die. But He is alive and seated on the throne as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
