Truth Tuesday – Pondering the Glorious Christ Given for Us

by Kathy

Mary Pondered

All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.

Luke 2:18-19

As Christmas approaches, may our focus not be consumed by the purchasing of presents, planning upcoming visits to family and friends, or all the tasks that to be accomplished each day, but instead the wonder and joy of Christ’s birth.  Let us ponder:

  • God’s glory in the angel’s announcement.  Luke 2:14
  • The One who came to save us from our sins.  Matthew 1:21
  • The work of the Holy Spirit and the wonder of God being born of a virgin.  Luke 1:26-38
  • The joy of the shepherds. Luke 2:8-18
  • The wise men worshipping and bowing down before Jesus. Matthew 2:1-12
  • The humble birth of Jesus.  Luke 2:7

As you read the above scriptures, ask God to give you a fresh new wonder in the Christmas story and a heart of overflowing joy.

Have a grace full week pondering the glorious Christ, the Everlasting Lord – the Light of the world –  given for us.
