As we draw near to Christmas, we wanted to share this wonderful blog, originally posted by Max Lucado.
When Christ was born, so was our hope.
Of all the delights of the season, this is why I love Christmas! This one event invites us to believe in one of the wildest of promises; God became one of us so that we could be one with Him! He did away with every barrier, sin, debt, and grave. Any and every thing that might keep us from Him, was demolished. He only awaits our word to walk through the door.
Invite Him in. Escort Him to the seat of honor, and pull out His chair. Clear the table and clear the calendar. Call the kids and neighbors.
Christmas is here. Christ is here.
One request from you and God will do again what He did then; scatter the night with everlasting light.
He’ll be born in you. Every heart can be a manger. Every day can be a Christmas. Let “Silent Night” be sung on summer nights. Let Advent brighten the autumn chill. The Christmas miracle is a yearlong celebration.
In this season of glory, remember that the Bethlehem baby has chosen your heart for His home.
