Every Christmas season, our family journeys together from Genesis to Christ’s birth. Each year the girls notice something new and learn a bit more about the incredible-ness of God’s plan to save each one of us from ourselves. It begins at creation and reminds us every step of the way how Jesus is part of the story. I love how the girls see the picture on the ornament and know immediately the story to come. I love how they help each other with names of people and places. I love the girls asking a question and how they pipe up to help one another understand. It is a treasured tradition that helps their roots grow deep and wide.
As this Christmas season comes to a close, never forget God has moved Heaven and Earth to make a way for you to be with Him forever-in a place overflowing with Truth, Love, and Joy. Christ is alive and loves you regardless of choices you have made…choose Him. He is one choice that you’ll never regret.
16 “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because [b]he has not believed andtrusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him]. John 3:16-18
