For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Merry Christmas. Here in Nebraska it is snowing like mad. A lot of the Christmas Eve services in Omaha were cancelled, and people are holed up at home. Although its wonderful to get to celebrate Christmas with fellow believers and family and friends, the snow can force us to stop and be still. I hope you will find time to think about the Gift of Christ, and what that means for you and the world. If its helpful for you, we have passages to reflect on during the day on our Scripture readings page, but here they are:
I know of a number of people who are alone for Christmas. If you know people in that situation, pray for them today, and maybe call to encourage them. Its hard to think of a better gift to Christ on this, his day.
I hope you have a meaningful and blessed Christmas Day!
