Wonder-Full Life:  Week 2, December 13, 2015

Jesus said, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”  What if the verse had ended after the first three words?  “I have come. . . .”  We could be left to wonder, “Why did He come?”  Should we cower in fear or dance in joy?  Is He coming to condemn us for our sins or save us from them?  


Thankfully, the verse doesn’t end with those first three words.  It continues, “that they might have life!”  He did not come to condemn the world but to save us from our sins.  That’s the story of Christmas!


Pray for those of us who will be teaching and preaching the Christmas story this coming Sunday.  May it resound to the ends of the earth!!
