The miracle of Christmas is that God is gracious. His grace carries us and breathes life into the deepest part of our wayward hearts. His grace extends His love and we are changed.
Jesus has come and we celebrate His coming. We celebrate His love that is rich, abundant, and unconditional. We celebrate the plan to redeem and restore every broken place. We celebrate the Eden we were made for that is even now, being prepared once again for all who believe. We celebrate full hearts that overflow with beauty in the simple everyday moments of life. And we celebrate the amazing grace that gives the most amazing gift.
Christmas is not just a day celebrated, but a life given. Jesus is the life and He brings ten thousand graces that cannot be measured.
The Scripture is clear. “For God so loved the world, He sent His only son!” Yes indeed, Jesus has come and displayed his love that is deep and wide, covering every moment of time. How refreshing to know and embrace this amazing love. In the midst of grief, pain, chaos, misunderstanding, loneliness, waiting, hoping and seeking, the Christ child has come to say, “I love you more.” It is beautiful and breathtaking and it is gracious and free. In His love alone, we find unconditional acceptance and we are able to live fully, believe, have hope, peace and great joy!
May the love of God be full and overflowing as you celebrate Jesus!
“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent
His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him.”
1 John 4:9 (ESV)
