Today’s exhortation – reason for the season
Jesus is the reason for the season and He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10). He came to heal the brokenhearted, for the recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; (Luke 4:18). He came to take away our griefs and carry away our sorrows; To take away our transgressions and iniquities and to give us peace and healing. (Isaiah 53:4-5). He also came to console those who mourn, to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3).
At His birth wise men went to give Him gifts. That’s where the whole concept of giving gifts comes from. On our birthdays we don’t give people presents, they give us presents. Today is Jesus’ birthday and the best gift you can give Him is your life. All He wants for Christmas is you! May The Lord Himself be a wall of fire around you and your family (Zechariah 2:5) as you celebrate His birthday. If you’re on your own today, He’s with you because He’s promised never to leave us nor forsake us. May He wrap His arms around you and make His presence real to you. Have a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!
