I was reminded of a very important truth – I am a child of God. A child chosen among the few. A designation that was given to me as a gift and there is nothing that I can do to remove that truth.
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (John 1:12-13, NASB)
To be reminded of this truth is very important in the Christmas Season. Because to be child of God means to believe in Jesus Christ. And even though this sound cliche “Jesus is the reason for the season”.
When we spend time with our family during Christmas, I do pray that we won’t lose the focus that it is only because of Jesus Christ that we are who we are – Children of God. Praise and glory to God alone for giving us this privilege to be part of his family. Let’s all give thanks!
Do you have the tendency to lose sight the focus of Christmas? Have you take the time to thank God today?
