and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.” ~ Ezekiel 9:4
In Ezekiel's vision, God had each person who sought him marked to be spared from His wrath. Today is Christmas Eve. Tomorrow, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, whom God sent to live, teach, suffer, and die, so that we, ALL of us, can have an opportunity to spend eternity in Heaven.
So, as you celebrate today, think of the priceless gift given us by God, His only Son, so that we might be spared the wrath of God.
I hope and pray you all have the merriest Christmas. But more than that, I hope and pray you all remember to thank the One for whom this holiday is named.
Jesus IS the reason for the season!
