“Glory to God in the highest realms of heaven! For there is peace and a good hope given to the sons of men.” Luke 2:14 (TPT)
This is the song the angels sang, on Christmas morn so long ago—the glorious good news that God had given the most precious gift the world has ever known. He gave His only Son Jesus Christ, the full revelation of God’s unwavering love—never to be taken back or taken away. The fulfillment of God’s promises and our life and destiny.
Sent from heaven with Jesus, was the manifestation of God’s abounding provision for us— love, joy, peace, goodwill the favour of God, and the fullness of all we would ever need, found in one so perfect, and so small.
In all the giving and receiving today, in all the joys and celebrations, even in the sadness that comes with keeping close in our hearts those who are far away, remember what God did for you, beloved one, on this most precious and holy day. For God so loved the world, so loved you, that He sent His only begotten Son, and for the joy set before Him—to reconcile us to the Father and bring heaven to earth—Jesus came!
Oh, dear heart, know with all that is in you, that Jesus came as a gift for you, and absolutely every wonderful thing about you, is a gift to Him too! Rejoice and give thanks for the King of Heaven, the Light of the World—the Holy One of Israel—is here!
