This is the first of my Random Thoughts about Christmas.
As we focus this season on "The Christ" in the cradle, we must not dismiss the salvation of "The Christ" of the cross.
As I was caught up in this thought, I was inspired to go deeper... As the sun rises we are birthed into a new day. With the setting of the sun, the day relinquishes itself into the Master's hand. The day fades away, its light dies, willing to give itself up for a never beheld dawn. Let yesterday pass away, fade into twilight. Every new day holds something never seen before ... look, gaze and wonder. Don't let the bygone day blind you to today's glory. For with Christ all things become new.
This season hold fast to the truth: The dusk of yesterday gives way to the dawn of tomorrow.
