Why Christmas Happened

The December 5 reading from "The Dawning of Indestructible Joy" by John Piper challenges us to make the Christmas story personal - that Jesus came to earth to save me, a sinner.

Pondering the words of 1 John 3:1-10 should make us feel a couple of different emotions: anguish and gratitude.

Our hearts should grieve over the realization that it is our sin that Jesus took upon Himself to the cross.

Yet, we should also feel utter amazement that we have a Savior who loves us and sacrificed Himself by living a life that we should have lived and dying a death that we should have died.

Yes. Let's make it personal.

See You In The Round!

PS - Continue to read with us over the weekend!  See you on Monday for more reflections over this great book!
