As we anticipate Christmas, it is good to look at His story, "a collection of monumental moments that remind us that Christ cared enough to experience life with us. Christmas is the time to remember that Christ not only came, but he stayed, he lived, he cared." ~ Max Lucado, introduction from Celebrating Christmas with Jesus, An Advent Devotional
Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save us,
nor his ear too dull to hear.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.
...just as the result of one trespass
was condemnation for all men,
so also the result of one act of righteousness
was justification that brings life for all men.
~ Once a Day 25 Days of Advent by Kenneth Boa with John Allen Turner, Day 2
