And The Word Became Flesh

     In our family devotion this morning, we thought of what we would feel if President Obama or Queen Elizabeth would choose to live in our home for 33 years. We would have turned our house around and still feel unworthy of the honor. Yet Jesus, the King of Kings, the creator of the universe, did just that.

"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His Name, who were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us ... " (John 1:12-14)

God sent forth His beloved Son to save me. Unworthy as I am, He dwelt in me and chose to adopt me.. He gave me the right to be called a child of God!

I like this quote from Chase, a book I've been reading by Jennie Allen, "Because of Christ, not one thing is the same. We are not striving to be new. We are just ... new. The old "us" died with Christ and we came back something entirely different ... He chased after us, not because we were worthy but because God is just that good." 

GOD

adopted
filled
strengthened
enabled

restored
forgave

What grace! What joy! What love!

That is the essence of the season. We cannot separate Jesus from Christmas. He is CHRISTMAS.

nothing is more satisfying than God."-Jennie Allen
