When Christ Jesus entered humanity sometime between 6-4 BC, He knew what He was doing. He wasn’t surprised nor was unwilling. Love came down to fulfill a promise and nothing would deter Him from completing that mission. Jesus knew that the gift we needed most would not be found under a tree adorn with lights, but instead would be provided through a different type of tree. To the world, this tree represented pain and humiliation…But to Jesus, it was a part of a plan that would redeem the world. A plan that God declared to Adam and Eve back in the Garden. He knew what we needed most, and it was something only God could do. Taking our sin upon Himself was the whole reason He came.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,”Ephesians 2:8
Friend, as you enter into a new day, today…please think upon the reality that Love came down to be enough on your behalf. The greatest gift we could ever receive, He gave… Himself. Jesus came down and lovingly bore the source of our suffering and brokenness (sin) upon those wooden beams as to free us, heal us, hold us, and lead us. He made a way to God that only He could make. Jesus purchased our freedom with His own sinless life. A free gift that brings everlasting hope, comfort, and rest to a weary world…each and every day. Consider this gift. Consider Jesus.
Every good and perfect gift comes from God.James 1:17
