"The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:9-14
What a glorious event and beautiful portrayal of love. Jesus, the true light, came for everyone. For those who believe in his name, we receive the best gift of all this season: the understanding that Christmas is more than the festivities. It's about the birth of our great Savior who came as the perfect sacrifice for our sins so that we may live a life that is full. Full of love, hope, peace, goodness, and joy. A fullness that can only come from abiding and believing in Him!
May your Christmas be full of the good things this beautiful season!
