My Christmas devotion photo above is of my favorite Bible verse - Psalm 27:8. God brought this verse to my attention the summer I came to know Jesus at the age of eighteen. It has since been what I consider my "life" verse. He has caused my heart to seek Him daily.
Our Scripture for today is Psalm 119:11. Are we treasuring His Word? You may have been asked before - if your house was on fire, what "things" would you try to save? What are your treasures?
What's God's greatest treasure? God knew from the beginning this world would fall to sin and its destruction; in fact, the Bible says one day this earth will all be burned up.
2 Peter 3:10 - "But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up."
And what did God decide was of such great value to Him that He decided He would rescue? ...YOU and me and all who will receive His gift of salvation (rescue). You are of that much value to God!
"For we are His workmanship (masterpiece), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." Ephesians 2:10
I don't know where you are right now in life. This Christmas may be a very difficult season for you. You may feel lonely and forgotten...valued by no one.
But I am here to tell you God says you ARE valued...by the Creator of the universe Himself!!!! Christmas is all about God coming to earth so that we could go home to Heaven with Him through His Son Jesus Christ - Immanuel - "God with us"!
He is here. He is near. And to Him, you are dear!

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
