December first is almost here bringing us that much closer to Christmas. A favorite verse reminding me of what the Lord has done is found in 1 Samuel
"Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart, for CONSIDER what great things he has done for you."
1 Samuel 12:24
I love Christmas.
Decorations.
Baking.
Cookies.
Christmas cards.
Music, which we started playing a little earlier this year.
Celebrations.
Giving gifts.
Our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.
But I love my Lord more, so I am praying today that God would continue to speak to my heart, mind and soul so I may consider the great things he has done for me.
The greatest event of all time.
God came in human form as a baby.
Born in a manger, probably in a cave.
He came to die for my sins
Taking them to the cross.
Applying his blood and righteousness to my dark and wicked heart.
What a reason to celebrate.
"...that Christ died for our(my) sins..."
1 Corinthians 15:3
