Daily Bible Reading: Jonah 1 - 4
Verse of the Day: Jonah 2:9 – “But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.”
This time next week we will be celebrating Christmas. Excitement and joy for most will be at a fever pitch. And the remembrance of the fact that God left the eternal now to step into our finite day to day will pass many right by. Although we do not know the day, we know the fact that God became man and lived with us.
Jesus – a name that literally means Jehovah is salvation was born to Mary in Bethlehem. Because we are in a broken world, with a brokenness of relation with God, it was necessary for God to become the means of salvation for man. As we count down the days, why not count the ways that Jesus is your salvation.
Prayer: Gracious Father, thank You that Your Son stepped into our world and made it possible to be with You. Amen.
