10:19 am est As we approach the day when
we Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we are reminded of what a great sacrifice God made to offer salvation to
everyone who would believe. Truly this was the greatest gift ever given,
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting life. "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the
world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17
I like the way the late Vance
Havner said it, "God didn't send His Son into the world to 'rub it in' but to 'rub it out!'"
What a wonderful,
gracious, loving, caring, giving, kind, generous, just, holy, God we serve.
"And they sang a
new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us
to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And
we shall reign on the earth." Revelation 5:9-10
"Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power
and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!" And every creature which is in heaven and
on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and
honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!" Then the four living
creatures said, "Amen!" And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever." Revelation
Let's join in and praise our Lord during this season of remembrance.
