As you celebrate Christmas, tonight, I pray that you are keenly aware of the purpose for this holiday. It’s not about exchanging gifts. It’s not about eating a lot. It’s not about good desserts or strong drinks. It’s about a little baby boy that was born over 2000 years ago. He was born, to die for the wrong things you and I have done.
As I look at these photos of my kids, I can’t help but think about what Adonai Elohim (The LORD God), aka El Shaddai (All Sufficient God), must have been thinking about his own precious Son. His own Son being sent into this horrible, hateful world, to be assaulted and murdered, on purpose. Just look at this sweet boy, in a green hood, and think if he were your son, “I’ll send him, he will die for them.”
