DAILY DEVOTION


HI!

An elephant was bathing in the lake, splashing water and having a good time.
A mouse approached and sat on the bank. He looked angry and disturbed.

The elephant asked, "What's the matter?"
The mouse said angrily, "Come out of the water at once!"
The elephant asked, "Why?"
The mouse in his squeaky voice, yelled, "COME OUT AT ONCE!"

The elephant realized if he were to get any peace, he would have to come out.
So he lumbered up on the bank, asking
"Why did you disturb my bathing, and get me to come out?"

The mouse said, "Well, somebody stole my bathing suit, and I wanted to see if it were you!"

LIGHT from the WORD.

It is easier to understand how an elephant could wear a mouse's bathing suit
than for us to understand the awesome mystery of the incarnation.

Eternity inhabited temporal flesh.
Holy majesty was exemplified in an innocent child.
The King of kings was born, son of woman.
The Creator came as part of the created.
Omnipotent omniscience was laid in a manger.
The true "LIGHT" of life was wrapped in swaddling clothes.

He truly wore your suit, and knows every temptation you face!

God's passion for our salvation became
His compassion for our sinful condition!
He came to bear our punishment, and to offer His forgiveness!

He is called:
WONDERFUL because He loves us, even though we are sinners. (See Rom. 5:8)
COUNSELOR because He can always help you make decisions. (See 1Tim. 1:17)
MIGHTY GOD Who spoke the universe into being. (See John 1:1-3)
EVERLASTING FATHER, Who came as a child to show us the true way of life. (See Micah 5:2) (See John 1:4)
PRINCE OF PEACE, and can give you peace even in trouble. (See Ppns. 4:6-7)

He is CHRIST THE LORD, the Messiah prophesied of old, THE “present” of God. (See Is. 43:11) (See Lk. 2:11)

And, He wants to be your SAVIOR, bringing His eternal presence to your heart. (See John 14:26)

In JESUS, one ALWAYS has MORE!!

RECEIVE Him,
Learn MORE of Him,
and SHARE Him with others!

The present of His presence is for ALL!

Love ya!
