Luke 2:14 The Voice (VOICE)
The Gift of the Christ—Messiah—is God’s greatest act of love for humanity. “For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life (John 3:16). Take this Truth into your soul (mind, will, emotions); in Christ, God has brought redemption into the world! Christ—God wrapped in human flesh—is our Creator AND our Redeemer. Redemption is the promise of God to save and deliver us from the power and presence of sin. The redemption of humanity is what brings the glory that is truly due to God!
It is Christmas, and your Gift awaits your response. Think about each day as a way to open the Perfect Gift and share Him with others. Live your life as a way to radiate God’s glory! Join with the heavenly choir this morning as we sing, “Glory to God in the highest!”
Heavenly Choir: To the highest heights of the universe, glory to God!
And on earth, peace among all people who bring pleasure to God!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the greatest Gift—Jesus—I could ever receive. May my life bring you the glory you are truly due. I can only live in a way that pleases you through Messiah, so I choose to follow my Redeemer. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
