The greatest gift of all! Here we are Christmas Eve 2008 celebrating not only the birth of Christ, but living in anticipation of His return. These are the "in between" times, where we are given the time to not only come to know and accept our Lord, but to learn to walk in His ways.
I like to think of life as a huge train station. Jesus has paid the price of the "ticket" for ALL of us, regardless of whether or not we accept that it is from Him. However, in giving us free choice, we can take any of the trains that come into the station. Only ONE of these trains will bring us to Jesus, but the ticket that He bought is accepted on all of the other trains. Which train will you choose?
Merry Christmas to all!
