As you prepare to celebrate Christmas, be sure to REST and REJOICE in the One who came to save us, to redeem us. Take your time reading the following scriptures; pray them back to God, journal them, sing them – do whatever you need to do to prepare your heart for the King of Kings who came to dwell among us.
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you” (John 14:16-17).
“. . . for we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people" (2 Corinthians 6:16).
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20).
