Welcome to our new series, Unto You.
Join us each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout December as we focus upon Jesus—who He is, why He came, and the difference He makes within each heart that knows Him.
May your heart fully celebrate Jesus, God’s eternal love gift who was given unto you.
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
The modern world looks at Christmas and fills it with clutter, noise, and busyness. The clutter can blind us from seeing the truth, the noise can keep us from hearing the truth, and the pace can keep us from finding the truth. God’s gift came in such a simple way, in such a quiet manner, and in such a lowly place. The crowds and busyness were at the inn at Bethlehem, not at the stable where Christ was born. Who would look there for anything important to happen?
At the manger there were no flashing lights to get the crowd’s attention, no sale signs to attract the shoppers, and no bands to stir up some passersby’s excitement. But, out of town, on a peaceful hillside, the heavens opened. A few humble shepherds, whose hearts were ready to listen, heard the most remarkable message that had ever been spoken.
Today, God is still drawing us back to the quiet waters of salvation, the lowly place of worship, the peace of His presence, the simplicity of the cross, the beauty of His face, and the only gift that Love could ever give...God’s only begotten Son.
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:15 NIV)
