Advent 2022: Saturday, December 17

December 17, 2022

Christmas was always warm fuzzys for me growing up, until I became a Christian at age 18 and started reading the Bible and came across the words, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34, Psalm 22:1). It broke my heart. The little baby Jesus, all grown up, now dying a horrific death and doing it all voluntarily and out of great love for us.

So, as I prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus, this glorious Christmas time, I get on my knees and humbly thank God, that this little baby did such a powerful sacrifice for his brothers and sisters.

Praise God for Jesus. Praise Jesus. He is our savior, born poor and simply, to a girl who loved him as any mother would love her newborn baby.

Thank God that this little baby, obeyed his father and finished his Fathers work.
