Merry Christmas Eve! Just read a devotion by Paul David Tripp — is a great reminder this day: “…the world was desperate for light. Everyone was part of the problem, and everyone suffered from the problem, but no one could solve the problem. God’s solution was the only way. He sent the one who is light to be the light that would light the world by grace. He came into the darkness so that we could know the light and life forever. Here is the Christmas story — only light can defeat the darkness. Light has come!”
This takes me to one of my favorite scriptures: Romans 7: 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
