As we come to the beginning of December, I thought we’d do our own advent countdown. Day 1: Offer a pray of praise today to God, expressing your thanks that he sent Jesus. Think about this: If Jesus had never come, aside from all the eternal implications for mankind, what would we do every December? I have always loved November and December, as we approach the holiday season, giving thanks and getting together with family. This is all centered on the person of Jesus, and celebrating His birth. If He had never come, would we have “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?” So today, take a moment and thank the Father that He sent Jesus, and that because of Jesus, we will have the opportunity to get together with friends and family in just 24 days.
