...the perfect time to take a break from the busyness of life and remember what this day signifies. Tonight we celebrate the evening just before the world changed forever. All those years ago, the sun set on a world that hung on the hope of the coming Messiah, but when the sun rose that hope had changed into reality. He was here!
Tonight I'm celebrating the reality of Christ's birth, that He humbled Himself to become human and walk in our footsteps. I'm celebrating the love and mercy that brought Him here.
And I'm celebrating the gift that He offers all of us if we'll only believe - salvation from our sin. That most astounding and beautiful of all gifts is available for everyone this Christmas and always. Just open it up!
