How Many Kings?

Listening to a song today and reminded just how great the gift of Christmas is.  It fills our spirits with anticipation for what is to come in that little baby Jesus' life with Good Friday and Easter and what hope that gift offers to each of us.

How many Kings step down from their thrones?
How many Lords have abandoned their homes?
How many Greats have become the least for me?
And how many Gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many Fathers gave up their Sons for me?

Do you understand the magnitude of that this Christmas?  It is for you.  The One true God did this all for you.  Your first step is to accept that as truth.

John 3:16  
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 10:9
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

It really is as simple as that.  The daily giving up of self that comes after you place your faith in Jesus is the hard part!  But thankfully His grace covers us all.

II Cor. 4:14-15
For Christ’s love compels us, that we who live should no longer live for ourselves but for him.

So where ever you find yourself today in the span of your relationship with Jesus, may you believe that YOU are worth it.  YOU are His chosen one.  This Christmas let His presence fill you and bring you peace.
