Anyone who reads Life with Lynnie (LwL) regularly, knows that I am a child of God. A born-again Christian. A follower of Christ.
But, I don't just follow. I do my best to live by the Word of God.
This may not have always been true in my life, but it is, today. And, for this, I praise God!
Being Christmas Eve, I thought it appropriate to refer to Luke 1:26-35, "And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God."
How grateful I am that God sent His only begotten Son, so save a sinner, like me.
How grateful I am that Jesus, God's only begotten Son, came to earth in obedience to God the Father's plan of redemption for us. To die on a wooden cross, for the sin of all who will believe.
How grateful I am that the Holy Spirit was sent to earth, to convict us of our sin and guide us to Salvation, among other things.
How grateful I am that it was part of my Lord's plan to save me from an eternity in hell.
If you do not yet know Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, please... do it, today. Trust in Him, with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.
May you, your family and friends be blessed as you celebrate Christmas.
May Jesus be your reason for the season.
Until next time...
