Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)

Christmas ‘reconciles’ us to God…and ‘that’ brings us true Peace and Joy
Romans 5:18 Paul wrote to us .. “Therefore..since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we alsorejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who he has given us. You see, at just the right time, when were were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Wow! There are so many glorious and sweet morsels of truth in what Paul writes above…re-read it…soak it up. Monday, in 1st John, we spoke of the ‘love of God’…that God gives us love because He ‘is’ love. That we are born of love. And Paul reiterates this truth… that to demonstrates His love for us…that while we were lost and separted from Him…while we were lost…while we had gone astray…while we did not deserve to be found…that JUST at the right time…the perfect time for you…the perfect time for me….God sent Jesus to find us and bring us home. Wow! Wow!
Father…thank you for loving us sooo much that you sent Jesus to find us. That while we were in darkness and totally lost…totally oblivious to your love… YOU loved us soooo much that YOU gave us Jesus….YOU sent Him to be our Savior and find us and save us and bring us home to you. I thank you that we belong to you ‘now’…and throughout eternity. Thank you that we have eternal peace and joy ‘in’ Jesus. Thank you, thank you. Amen
