Before the foundation of the world, Jesus divine purpose was clear. He was always the answer for man to have a relationship with God and be redeemed. Jesus was sent to become as a sin offering, and become our scapegoat. He was born for the sheer purpose of death. Yet He was not rebellious to God, and He never turned away from the Father’s plan. He rejoiced and willingly sought to do the Father’s will. Redemption that is found in Christ originates out of God’s great love for us. We are born into condemnation. Jesus came to set us free. There is no need for man to fear Christ, but the turning point with each who has known or heard the Gospel will be our attitude toward the light we have experienced.

With the knowledge and light you have received from Christ, who do you live for? How are you sharing the real meaning of Christmas?

PRAYER – Jesus, in this situation I have nothing to offer of my own ingenuity or strength; I need your wisdom and power as badly as I need the air that I breathe.  As I move forward may I do so in desperate dependence on You every second.  I joyfully and unreservedly confess that I am inadequate to answer Your call, in fact, I can do absolutely nothing without You.  I’m not able to handle this situation on my own and any good that results must come solely through You.  I simply ask You right now to flow through me, Lord Jesus, and cause me to stay out of Your way. Amen
