Celebrating at the Crib, and Calm at the Cross
Celebrating at the Crib, and Calm at the cross. Lk. 1:46-55.Colo. 1:15-20The requirement for reconciliation with God is faith.Let's nail that down right now. We are reconciled to God: not by what we do, not by how we act, not by what we appear to be, but by our faith.Paul tells us that Jesus is the creator of the universe, the head of the church, the very fullness of God. This means something to each of us on a very personal, intimate level: it means that his power is available to you — that he will fill you with strength, and hope, and peace. When you give your life to Christ, fear, turmoil and chaos can become a thing of the past. You don't have to live your life thinking that you are on your own, because his power and strength are available to you. You don't have to live your life feeling as if everything is spinning out of control, because he can and will hold things together. You don't have to live your life overcome with worry, turmoil and anxiety, because he will fill your life with peace. This Christmas season you can celebrate at the crib and be calm at the cross because of what Jesus did for us when he came to earth to pay a debt that we couldn't pay ourselves.
