Jesus said, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (John 10:9-11)
Christmas is here! And this is why we celebrate – Jesus was born so that we can have life. He chose to become one of us and to lay down his life so we could be made new, so that we could be with him.
One of the songs on my heart this season is All Sons & Daughters song God With Us. You can listen to it here.
I pray for each one of you that you will be able to draw close to Jesus not just as a baby born thousands of years ago, but as God who did everything to be with us. I pray you will find your strength in His presence. I pray He will be your reason to sing. I pray He will be light to drive out any darkness.
I pray you will know him as this song describes –
God with us
