December 21–Let’s Count Down…and Calm Down…and Consider JESUS!

In three days from today it will be Christmas Eve.

For those two or three of you who read A Time for Grace and Truth regularly…you know that the third day away from Christmas Eve is now actually almost done before I ever even got to post this devotional.

Personal issues…precious people who needed my time and attention—during the wee hours of this morning…and throughout this whole day…and well into this night—had to be my first priority. So, thank you for your patience.

I pray that we will all let God speak to each of our hearts so that we will realize how very precious we are to our LORD…and how very deep and intimate is His love for us and how very constant and powerful is His presence with us. There is nothing…no circumstance, no situation, no experience…nothing…that can ever separate us from the love of our God.

It was out of God’s unlimited, unfailing, outrageous love for us that Jesus was born to us…to die for us…to give us eternal life with Him.

Christmas is not just about a precious little baby boy born in barn and laid in a manger with a star shining brightly and an angel choir giving a magnificent sound and light show to some bewildered shepherds.

Christmas is really about the fullness of who Jesus is: our amazing, inexplicable God…our Messiah…our Savior…our LORD…who loves us beyond our comprehension—and promises to us, who are God’s children by faith in Jesus, that we can never be separated from His love!

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,

neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth,

nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

So, let’s all Count Down…and Calm Down…and Consider Jesus…in this season and in every season of our lives!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
