Christmas time is here; there are decorations everywhere. Christmas trees and bright lights. Shoppers and gifts as well as late nights. Pies to bake and cookies to decorate.
It’s so easy to be distracted each day and miss what the message in the manger has to say.
There is a message of hope and love being sent from heaven above. The message shines brighter than the stars in the sky if we look with our hearts and not with our eyes.
Our eyes may see an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, but the real message is wrapped in his heart and only continues to grow.
God’s message this Christmas day, is the same that it was on Jesus’s birthday. I give to you hope and love, peace and joy; receive my free gifts they are for every girl and boy.
If you are only looking for the gifts under the tree, you will miss the gifts, which truly are free.
Freedom, which comes from within, you can only receive from HIM. The baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, carrying a message calling you home.
The message in the manger is for you today. Will you receive it or walk away?
