#Devo – The Messy Reason for #Christmas

nativity-sketchesWith the Beauty of the Christmas season, don’t forget the MESSY reason that it came about.

Here’s some verses we’ll be sharing around our table on Christmas Eve:

  • 1 Timothy 1:15 – “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners…”
  • 1 John 3:5 – “Jesus came to take away our sins…”
  • Luke 7:34 – “The Son of Man came eating and drinking… a friend of tax collectors and sinners.”
  • Luke 19:10 – “the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
  • Matthew 20:28 – “the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

This Christmas, celebrate the fact that God was willing to enter the world to take on the messiness of our sin that we might know Him & experience His presence.
