Christmas Reflection 12/25/14
God has given us so many gifts. He gave us life. He created this beautiful world for us to take care of and enjoy. Every blessing you have came from God.
The greatest gift God has given us is Jesus. God himself came to earth to show us how to live, and to suffer unimaginably and die so that we could enjoy eternity with him.
Reflect on this gift as you listen to “How Many Kings” by Downhere. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTYe9sWYKdo
God has given us everything. The only reasonable response is to give everything back to God. Is there some part of your life that you have not been able to turn over to Jesus? A dark corner that you don’t want anyone to see? A part of your life that you know needs to change, but you aren’t yet willing to let go?
Choose today to surrender every part of yourself and your life to God. Ask the Holy Spirit for the strength you need to turn everything over to God.
Thank you for journeying with me through Advent. I encourage you to continue to celebrate Jesus’ birth throughout the Christmas season, which begins today and ends January 11, when we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus.
Have a blessed Christmas season!
