God With Us
Today's reading: John1:1-18; Luke 1:26-56; 2:1-40; Matthew 1:18-2:23
John 1:1-18 tells of God's marvelous plan of salvation through Jesus coming to live a perfect and sinless life among us. But the details of Jesus coming to earth and taking on human form are recorded in the opening chapters of Matthew and Luke.
Now more than likely, you're familiar with the Christmas story, as am I. Even so, each Christmas season I like to read the accounts that detail the miracle of Jesus' birth as well as a variety of passages that point to Jesus coming to earth to be our Savior. God always moves my heart and draws my attention to circumstances and context, actions taken, emotions, words thought and spoken--all of which help me continue to gain a better understanding of God's incredible master plan and His love for us.
I invite you to join me today (and through this weekend) in reading the account of Jesus' birth in Matthew and Luke, along with the first chapter of John. Before you read, ask God to reveal something new to you from this familiar and marvelous story. Tami
