Our number 25 Christmas devotion is a Christmas object lesson with Bible verses to help us keep our focus on the true
reason for the season! Each day
snap a photo of each item for a visual and use as a photo challenge on Social
Media, or with your family, small group, friends or just for yourself. It’s a fun way to enjoy the presence of
Christ each and every day as we look towards celebrating His birthday!
Okay...the photo called for a son, but when you have two...how do you choose?!
One of the greatest joys of Christmas now that all our kids are grown is when they come home! There's not much better than having all four of them (and all new additions) under one roof!!!
This makes me wonder at how incredible the joy God the Father must have felt when Jesus, His Son, rose from the dead and went back home to Heaven!
"fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
You see, the Christmas story doesn't end at the cradle, nor did it end at the cross...it ends with a crown!
Our verse today is probably the most well known in the Bible, and in it we find the brief summary of the entire Bible...all 66 books!
God sent His Son Jesus that we might have eternal life!
Jesus not only died on the cross that He might go home to the Father in Heaven, He died so that He can take us with Him for the grandest homecoming ever!
Jesus spoke so much about the Kingdom of Heaven and His return.
Matthew 25 records two parables (stories with a spiritual lesson) about His Second Coming of when He will come to take all of those who have believed (trusted) in Him home to Heaven, and then says the following in verses 31-33:
“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. “All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left."
This Christmas let every son (or daughter) remind us of all that God's Son has done for us and "that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."
Homecoming...what a time for celebration!!! Let's keep looking ahead to the Son's return and our homecoming with Him in Heaven!
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.
