It is Christmas in America and we have so much to celebrate. Yesterday we considered the Son who was given. That Son was a King and He came down from heaven to become the sacrifice for the sin of all mankind.
Stop for a moment to ponder that. The King of the universe loves you and loves me so much that He left His home in glory to come to a sinful world, to save sinful men, women and children. It took a perfect human life to pay the debt we could not pay. King Jesus was that perfect human life, sent from heaven.
That King was born in Bethlehem, but most were sleeping. That King ministered in the Galilee area, but the common man was sleeping. That King gave His life in Jerusalem, but the religious elite were sleeping. That King rose from the grave and, today, most of mankind is sleeping.
Today, let’s awaken and be prepared for the soon return of King Jesus. That Son…that King…is well worth celebrating!
