Christmas Eve

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve service tonight at JBC. Short and simple, worship, special music, reading of Christmas Story from Isaiah and Luke, and communion. It was nice for me to have Pastor Mike running the service tonight so I got to sit with everyone else and enjoy the evening. It was easy to reflect during the service about what Jesus did for me in leaving heaven, becoming a person like me, dying for my sins and giving me eternal life with Him.  He must love me a lot. Certain truths need to be thought about over and over a over again to move it from mere intellectual ascent to a deeply felt conviction that is very real in the deepest part of our heart. The birth, life, and death of Jesus is one of those truths that has potential to create a great sense of self worth, security, and confidence as we live life if it is truly grasped and grafted into our heart.
