Advent 2012 Day 17
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. (Galatians 4:4-5 NIV)
Christians claim that Jesus is the reason for the season, but they’ve gotten it all wrong. According to scripture, WE ARE THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. We are the lost sheep Jesus came to seek and to safe. We are the ones for whom He humbled Himself and entered a small world, in comparison to His kingdom, which was created by His own hands. He lived to show us how to serve others, respond to our enemies, and glorify the Father. He died to cleanse us from the filth of our sins in preparation for adoption into His family. He rose again to affirm our inheritance.
