The Reason For the Season Reflection
Hello friends! Just throwin a quick blog post at you over some reflections I have had this Christmas break!
I have lately been thinking a lot about grace. I know it’s weird to think about forgiveness and grace around Christmas, usually that’s an Easter topic. But I have realized this over the last week, Jesus was born and he lived and died to extend grace and love to all of us. WOW! His grace is something to reflect on not just around his death and resurrection but in His birth and all the times in between these celebrations.
I often forget about the grace the Lord has extended in my life. But what a great season to remember why He was born in the first place. I have fallen time after time again, and it’s so easy for me to get frustrated. But the fact that the Lord is always there offering grace with His hand extended to lift me back up is incredible!
I feel like as Christians today, we so often have the “do it yourself” mentality. But in fact the Lord didn’t call us to do it ourselves because that would defeat the purpose of why He died. The Lord has called us to live out in His unfailing grace and love, and to strive to be like Him. We will fail, but when we look up to catch the hand extended from the Lord, we will find grace and love to continue in our walk.
Reflect on his grace this Christmas break, and don’t forget to walk in it!
Thanks for stopping by!
