It was His love that brought Him to our world over 2000 years ago. It was His love for me...for you...for all of us. His love that nailed His hands and feet to the cross all those years ago. For my sin...your sin...their sin. His love for a broken, lost world. His desire to see all of humanity saved from the wrath of His Father to come.
'The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.' 2 Peter 3:9
His gift to us this Christmas, every Christmas, is His love. Unconditional. Forgiving. Merciful. Grace-filled love. Without it I would be lost. Without I would be NOTHING. Oh but with Him I am EVERYTHING. I am forgiven. My eternity with Him is sealed. He is my friend, deliever, sustainer, provider...my Daddy.
He is my gift. He is my prize. Together we are unstoppable. Nothing can separate us. His love is unfathomable and I am the grateful, humble recipient of the best gift ever given... So Happy Birthday My Jesus! And thank You for all You've done for me...
