Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God wants us to have life! Real life. Life that lasts forever with him! That's why God the Father sent Jesus. That is why Jesus, God the Son, left the Father's side and came to earth. That is why Jesus endured the Cross with all of its humiliation. That's why Jesus rose from the dead in triumph over satan, sin, death, demons, and hell. God loved us with an everlasting love in Jesus! God loved us with the greatest gift of all time. What other Christmas gift can compare? So, "Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!" the greatest gift of all!

My Prayer...

O "Father of the heavenly lights," the giver of "every good and perfect gift" (James 1:17). Of all your gifts, loving Father, we recognize that none can compare to Jesus, the Son. You are worthy of praise simply because of who you are: God Most High! You are worthy of praise because of all you have done: God, Creator, and Provider. You are worthy of praise because of your mighty acts, God Almighty. Most of all, you are worthy of my heart, soul, mind, and strength because of the love you demonstrated in Jesus, who was God with us and among us and one of us to save us. Thank you for this most wondrous gift of all! In Jesus' name, I thank you and praise you. Amen.
