December 2020 Devotions:
A Child Is Born
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace .”
(Isaiah 9:6 NKJV)
Quote that verse as you go through the Christmas Season. There are many things that take your mind off the reason for the season, but do they really need to distract you?
As you go shopping, decorate, bake, visit friends and enjoy all the activities for the holidays, just ask Christ to keep His birthday at the center of all these things. As you enjoy your family, children or even grandchildren, remind them of how much you love them and how much the baby born in a stable loves them. Jesus protects them every day and He arose from the grave and promises to be in our hearts if we ask him. Do you know folks who are miserable? Well, life may not be fantastic all the time, but with Jesus it is worth it for we can know our eternal destiny.
Have a joyful, peaceful “Christ”mas.
We care so if you need a place to celebrate Jesus’ birth, visit us this December.
