In light of the snowiest February in Denver, I felt this Winter Snow by Audrey Assad was greatly appropriate.
As a follower of Christ, one of my great joys is celebrating Christmas, no matter the date on the calendar. Advent represents God loving us and coming to rescue us from our sin. Jesus’ incarnation was not world headline news, yet is one of the most important events in history.
Galatians 4:4-7, “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying,’Abba! Father!’ So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir though God.”
I am grateful that God offers redemption to those who are guilty under the law. I am thankful for a baby that came to die for my sin. I am in awe of the kind of love that God has for us. I am amazed that I am a child of the King through adoption.
It is my prayer that the next time is snows, our thoughts will not be that of snowmen, cabin fever, or milk, bread and eggs but of the Son of God who came to offer Himself as a sacrifice for our sins.
