December 13

Written by Bill Grandi on December 13th, 2021

An excerpt from Paul David Tripp’s book, Come, Let Us Adore Him struck me big time this morning:

“If God was willing to send His Son to restore our relationship of love with Him, you can be sure that He will not let anything separate us from His love. You see, the Christmas story is the world’s best love story {Ed. note: sorry Hallmark. 🙂 } It’s about a God of love sending the Son of His love to live a life of love and die a death of love, so that all who believed in Him would be welcomed into the arms of love forever and ever. Embedded in the Christmas story is a promise of unbroken love for the children of God.”

There is so much that is right about that statement. Do you realize how important and appropriate the Scripture in Romans 8 is that says, “Nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus”? (8:39)

The Christmas story is more than a baby in a manger (although that would be enough). It is also a love story. One of unconditional love. One of love given away when it is undeserved.

“Father, may that truth become clearer as each day draws me closer to the celebration of the birth of Jesus.”

  2. “When love came down at Christmas . . .”
    May we always be focused on the real meaning of Christmas, Bill.
    Great sermon yesterday!

    • Bill Grandi says:

      That is so true Martha. A love we simply cannot grasp. And thanks for the kind words about the sermon. Funny, how God shows me that it isn’t how I feel but how He works.

  3. Ryan S. says:

    Hard to fathom at times… the endless supply of love that God has for not only His children, but also for those who have wondered away or have yet to recognize Him.
    The Christmas Story brings that home.
