TODAY'S DEVOTION

Wednesday, December 20, 2000
 

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."  (Luke 2:11)
  
 
Today's Thoughts  
 
During this season, more than all others, the "Reason" can be hard to focus on for even those with the strongest faith! Television floods our homes with commercialized Christmas advertisements and programming. Radio fills the airwaves with seasonal songs, many of which fail to even mention the "Reason for the season". Workplaces are full of hustle and bustle trying to get ahead so everyone can take a few days off without the business losing money. Parties, pageants, cantatas, plays, programs, shopping, wrapping, planning, cooking, baking, greeting . . . and the list goes on. Time is soon snuffed out and there is none left to devote quality time with the "Reason" for the season!
 
There was hustle and bustle in the heavenlies when this miracle Christ-child was born, but every bit of busy-ness was directly related to the birth of the Savior. It was indeed a holy night, but silent? It is doubtful. The skies were ablaze with angelic beings praising and glorifying God for the event they had just witnessed; the manger where He lay was noisome with the animals who more than likely recognized the awesomeness of the visitor to their humble stable.
 
Take a deep breath, sit down and relax, and spend that much needed time in reflection of who the "Reason" for the season truly is, what He has done for you, Make one more list . . . count your blessings . . . and begin to Praise the Lord for the work He has done in you, for you, through you this past year. Then give a gift to a friend . . . tell them about the precious King of Kings and Lord of Lords that you serve with joy and gladness. Give them a gift that will last forever . . . give them the gift of eternal life by introducing them to the "Reason for the Season"! 
  
 
Today's Prayer 
  
Father, forgive me for getting caught up in the busy-ness of this season. Help me, Lord, keep my gaze fixed on You and my mind set on the true "Reason" for the season, my Lord, Your Son, Jesus Christ! Thank you, Lord, for this most Precious Gift . . . Glory to God in the Highest! Amen! 
 
Have a blessed day!
