Before it was fully light, I looked out on a panorama of pure white snow.
Immediately my mind signaled a promise;
'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow ...
..though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
What a beautiful reminder of the Christmas message!
God sending His son to enter His life on earth as a baby ..
willing to lower Himself .. because He loves me and you.
He left His divine position with the Father to offer hope and forgiveness ..
..with selflessness, humility and compassion ..
and finally death.
.. so that you and I would have a gateway into eternity.
.. the angel said to her,
'Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.
You will be with child and give birth to a son,
and you are to give him the name Jesus.
He will be great and will be called
the Son of the Most High.
The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,
and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever;
his kingdom will never end.'
Luke 2: 29 - 33
