Today I shared a devotion over at the Laced with Grace site entitled “A Savior for us all”.
Christmas is an exciting time of the year. It’s my favor holiday to celebrate and as soon as the hot summer days begin to fade into cool weather and the leaves begin to change colors and fall I start getting excited about Christmas.
I just love the trees! The snow! The fire place burning! Christmas songs! The homemade cookies! The lights! The presents under the tree! The Christmas dinners! The family gatherings!
It’s so exciting buying gifts, receiving gifts, spending time with family, and making wonderful memories.
I love this time of year, but even more than all the wonderful things at Christmas time, I don’t ever want to forget why we celebrate Christmas.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
God gave us the most precious gift anyone could ever give or receive; a Savior.
On that day He gave to us more than we could ever need and EVERYTHING we could every hope for! Christ was born, a Savior for us all!!
Christmas cannot be found in shopping malls or underneath the Christmas tree… it is found in our hearts!
It’s a time of GIVING and BLESSING others!!!
Let’s not get caught up in the “things” we buy or receive, but remember it’s all about LOVE and GIVING and BLESSING others, like Christ did for us!!
Merry Christmas everyone!! J
