I wanted to say something profound or share a poignant Christmas memory. But with the growing hate towards each other in America we need more than fancy words in a sappy story.
We need You, God.
You don't just tolerate us. You love us so much you sent your Son to die for us.
You aren't swayed by social pressures. There are no double standards. All humans have sinned and need salvation.
You are The Way, The Truth, and The Life. That doesn't change, no matter what we choose to believe.
You give Peace that goes beyond all understanding and defies world thinking.
Thank You, God.
Tomorrow, remind us to stop counting the number of presents and focus instead on the eternal gift of salvation through Jesus. Until we know You, we won't know true love and compassion for others.
For by grace you are saved through faith..it is a gift of God, not of works....Ephesians 2:8-9
