So what did it cost for me to decorate the house this Christmas – More than I expected! None the less, it looks lovely.
But as we consider Jesus being born, let’s not forget the purpose of him coming to Earth.
The cost for me to have a friendship with a perfect God was much greater than purchasing baubles. Jesus came to pay the price through death on a cross, so that the garbage in our lives wouldn’t stand in the way of us connecting with a Holy and perfect God.
Can I encourage you this year to see Christmas not simply as a story or a tradition – but as a personal gift that has been purchased for you, with your name on it. A gift that lasts forever. The gift of life in its fullest through Jesus Christ.
