(The Nativity of the Lord, Christmas)
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
All we’ve been awaiting since, even before, Thanksgiving. All the decorations, all the music, all the trees and all the gifts are as nothing compared to the MOST awesome gift that our God has bestowed upon us this day. It is Christmas. It is Jesus! He has come and now He dwells in the hearts of those who believe in Him. And for those who don’t, He offers an open invitation to “Come!” Come, find the gift that is better than anything we could possibly find under a tree. It is Jesus. It is eternal life and salvation. It is true gift that brings us back into union with God our Father. Come! And truly LIVE!
May our loving God bless you this Christmas and always, beloved!
As we are ‘together forever in Christ’s love!’ (TFICL)
