Before the parties and before the gifts.
Before the meals and travel to family gatherings.
Even before the worship services and serving the needy and carol singing…
There is Jesus.
Put Him first.
Don’t put Him first because it is His birthday and it is rude not to put Him first.
Put Him first because He is God and everything else pales in comparison.
John 1:10-14 He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. 11 He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. 12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God. 14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. (NLT)
Merry Christmas to everyone!
