Dec 21 - Pondering Christ's Birth

Oh, the wondrous story!!  

The beginning of the end of man's separation from God. Jesus came to be God with us and to shepherd and lead and guide us back to a place of harmonious relationship with God. Without Jesus this is impossible.

One part of the Christmas story that I have always appreciated is the pondering of Mary and the choice of treasures that she is illustrated to store in her heart. What are you storing in your heart? What are the treasures that you are holding onto in your life?

Do you have special family memories that come to light this time of year that encourage and lift up your heart? Or perhaps your treasures are bitterness, envy, rage, anger, broken relationships, etc... should I go on?  

This is the time to take hold of the greatest treasure of all, Jesus Christ.
He came to bring us life in its full capacity to be lived, and our response should be that of the shepherds. When we truly encounter Jesus, our desire will be to tell everyone we meet of who we have met and what we have seen.

Take time to encounter Jesus this Christmas.

Christ in Christmas

Take time this advent season to re-align your focus on Jesus Christ.
He is the only reason for this season.

Take time each day to read the Scripture passage and to listen to the song.
