For unto YOU….

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring
you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”   13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,  14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2:8-14

I highlighted the “you’s” in this scripture to illustrate why God sent His son.  It was for YOU.  God loves us so much that He became flesh.  John 1:14 tells us that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.”  In Jesus, we see the glory of God’s grace and truth.

John 1:17 goes on to explain that “the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.”  So God came – Jesus was born – not only to show us His grace but to give us His grace.  He wants us to receive it and experience it.

This Christmas, experience this grace.  This grace that forgives all of your sins and takes away all guilt. 

He came to earth for you.  And, He loves you more than you know.

Have a joy-filled Christmas.  May peace and love be your portion this holiday season.

Love, Kris, Dusty, John Henry & Anna
