Love is Giving

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:1 & 14

It is so easy to get sucked into the festivities, the buying of gifts, wrapping of presents, travels, jingle bells, etc, and miss out completely on the very essence of Christmas.

Christmas is about a demonstrated love – God taking the first step to bring us back to himself through his Son Jesus. Now, gifts and turkey carvings are delightful, but what’s more delightful is that God desires a relationship with us- not because he needs relationship by the way, but because we were made for relationship. In him, with him, we find our true selves and purpose.

So this Christmas, remember Who it is really about and do make some space and time for Him.
Have a blessed Christmas time.

About Just-A-Thought

Life can get very busy, fast and heavy. Sometimes living can become a challenge as life seems to always throw us at the deep end. In times like that, we need encouragement, a word of hope, a voice that assures that it gets better; that we should hang on. Just-A-Thought offers Christian words of hope in dispair, light in darkness, and strength to carry on.
