Christmas Is…Day 3

Christmas Is…

But He was pierced for our transgressions;
He was crushed for our iniquities;
upon Hm was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with His wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on Him
the iniquity of us all.
—Isaiah 53:5-6

He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed. —1 Peter 2:24

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. —1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Stand in awe and worship the King who has bore our sins that we might live! He has healed our broken places so that we might walk in freedom and in fellowship with the Father.

Rejoicing in Him!

Christmas Is…Day 2

Christmas Is…

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall His name Immanuel. —Isaiah 7:14

But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” —Matthew 1:20-21

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight…—Ephesians 1:7

Jesus is Immanuel, God with us, who has saved us from our sins and brought forgiveness to us.

How often do we strive to perform and earn salvation based on our own works?

What are some of the ways you seek to earn God’s favor and forgiveness apart from Jesus?

Remember today the grace God has lavished upon you which has brought redemption and forgiveness to you in Christ alone!

Receive this gift—cease striving and know that He is God!

Rejoicing in Him!

He IS!

 {a Selah moment}

I need the daily reminder of who my God is and that He IS present in my every moment.  He IS exactly what I need in that moment.  The question becomes, will I choose to seek Him, cry out to Him, trust Him and praise Him — in and through it all?  He IS the LORD “my” God.  He IS the LORD “your” God.
