What a God! What a Savior!

Christmas is only one week away! I am glad my Christmas shopping and wrapping is done (I got away with wrapping only one gift this year. That's good because if you see my wrapping job, you would think a first-grader did it!). Now I can focus on getting my heart ready to lead our church family in the celebration of Jesus Christ during our upcoming Christmas services!

To help you get focused, here is an excerpt from Max Lucado's book, In the Grip of Grace. Enjoy!

"Ponder the achievement of God. He doesn't condone our sin, nor does he compromise his standard. He doesn't ignore our rebellion, nor does he relax his demands. Rather than dismiss our sin, he assumes our sin and, incredibly, sentences himself. God's holiness is honored. our sin is punished . . . and we are redeemed. God does what we cannot do so we can be what we dare not dream: perfect before God!" 

Thanks, Max! Well said!

And thanks for stopping by . . .
