Merry Christmas

December 26, 2007

Merry Christmas to all of my faithful readers…. and well, Merry Christmas to the rest of you too. Remember what this day is all about. Its so easy to lose sight (which I often do, damn this world…) It was cool to take some “alone time” and just thank God for his perfect gift. This evening I read Galatians 4 which I have done on several other occasions but tonight it had more meaning. Tonight God’s word became more “alive.” Here is an excerpt of what I read:

Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father. So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world. But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” – Gal 4:1-7

I bolded the parts that really stuck out to me this time around. “when the fullness of the time came” Wow. God is in control. Not just control, but perfect control. Amen? I needed to read that tonight.

On a lighter note: Merry Christmas from me to you:
