Care Enough

Enjoying pancakes with a candle and whipped cream, just because we can!

December 3-4
The Hallmark channels are packed full of Christmas specials this month.  The company's theme this  year,  in their heart tugging commercials, is "Care Enough." A great personal challenge for us all.
Finish this sentence...Do I care enough to....?

Jesus is the ultimate example of caring enough. He cared enough for us that he laid down his life for our sins.

At least three of the movies this season are prince or princess related.  You know how the story goes. There's no need for spoiler alerts with Hallmark movies.  A European prince or princess, usually on the sly in America, looking for normalcy, accidentally falls in love with a commoner and...

Well, we are all part of a royal love story.  The Prince of Peace left his heavenly throne and came to earth and walked among the commoners. Even in the throws of our sinfulness, the Prince of Peace loved us so deeply, he cared enough to pay the price for us to enter a royal ever after.  For those who believe on His name, they get the story tale ending!

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called 
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, 
Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

Where in your life have you seen Jesus...
Be your counselor
Reveal his might.
Love you like a Father (He will do this forever)
Exude a peace that passes understanding over your circumstances?
