“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you.” (Philippians 1:3)
What do you look
forward to the most at Christmas? Be honest. The gifts? The food? The days off
work or school? Going to Disneyworld? Going to visit family, or having family
come to visit you? We all look forward to something, don’t we?
Paul was writing to
the church at the city of Philippi and telling them he thought of them often
and was always grateful to God each time he remembered the people there. He
goes on to tell them that he knows that God will continue to do a good work
with them until Jesus comes back.
We look forward to
seeing cousins, grandparents, children, friends and other special people during
the Christmas season and always want the best for them. However, as much as we
look forward to getting together with our family and friends, we should be even
more excited about Jesus returning to us someday.
Spend a little quiet
time with God today.
