Christmas Devotionals – 12/13

By Adam Wallace

Colossians 1:15-20

“…and through him to reconcile to himself all things.”
 
What understanding do you have of the restoration of your soul to God? Reconciliation was His plan from the beginning. Christmas is the full essence of God revealed in the birth of the preeminent Christ. It is the image of the invisible deity inserted into the brokenness of humanity to bring peace. Is this reality in your heart? If this season is to have any meaning beyond the festivities, you must accept the authority of Jesus, letting Him consume every emotion, thought, word, and deed. When the rush of the holidays begins to overwhelm, know that Christ is supreme. As the stress of managing schedules to get here and there becomes too much, rest in Him. See to it that the creator of all things engulfs your heart, for this is why you were made through Him and for Him, that every last ounce of your soul may be reconciled.
 
Father, let my soul find refreshment in the fullness of Jesus today. Fix my thoughts on your supremacy. Tune my heart to the miracle of Christmas, that I may know your unbelievable love demonstrated in the birth of your son. Amen.
