Christmas Devotionals – 12/10

By John Regalsky
Hebrews 1:1-4
 
When reading this passage, verse two jumped out at me: ‘but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world.’ Most recently, our family built a firepit in our back yard. On a recent, crisp evening, my wife, our two kids and I sat under a clear sky, which was a rarity within the city. The Lord provided Jenny and I a precious opportunity for us to go through the entire alphabet with JD and Evie to shout out characteristics of God. ‘Awesome, Bread of life, Creator, etc…’ In a world so small in comparison with our vast universe, yet so significant, God loved us so much to send His Son, Jesus, as a humble, servant King to sacrifice Himself for us and our mistakes – past, present and future. I’m at awe thinking about how through Jesus, God created everything (Col 1:16). And if He knows and governs the laws of the universe, I am reminded to surrender to Him daily, every area of my life, for He is ultimately in control.
 
“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15)
