Daily Devotional December 14
“God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:8)
To understand God’s incredible love for us the cradle is a good place to start, but we must continue on to the cross. What would cause God to limit His infinite self to a human form? Love. What would cause God eternal to suffer the indignities of death for sin? Love. To understand God’s love for us in its fullest context we must consider the whole of Scripture. When we begin to grasp the breadth of it, it should truly leave us breathless.
G O D
…Who was not created, but who has always been and forever will be
…Who was not taught, but knows and sees all
…Who was not assisted, but created all that exists
C H O S E
…To be born as a baby, limiting himself to complete helplessness
…To be taught by imperfect parents who had little to offer him but their love
…To be assisted by men of cruel intent in order to fulfill his life’s purpose
S O T H A T W E M A Y
…As flawed as we are, be made perfect
…As sinful as we are, be made pure
…As insignificant as we are, know Him in all His Fullness
This is why we celebrate:
G O D C H O S E , S O T H A T W E M A Y !
