365 Days of the Great Names of God, Day 25: Savior


"'Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.'" (Luke 2:11 NIV)

Oh, Merry Christmas, dear NOG friends! This is the news that is eternally good! When we pursue relationship with Jesus...when we admit who we are—the fallen—and put our faith in who He is—the Faithful and True—He wipes away the stain of our sin that would otherwise make it impossible for us to live forever in the presence of a holy God. And this Savior keeps on saving us from ourselves, day after day, until that great day when all we have been saved for will become clear.

Today, in every heart that prepares Him room, a Savior has been born. He is Christ the Lord.

"When I think upon Christmas,
Words can't express
How our Father in heaven
Has sent us His best.
To be born in a manger,
The  King in the hay,
And creation will worship His name.
For the joy of the world He was born,
Bringing peace to us all through the gift of the Son.
Now the darkest of ages are done,
For the Savior of heaven has come."

("When I Think Upon Christmas," Hillsong Worship)

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to tell me what you really think. Years ago, I explained to my then-two-year-old that my appointment with a counselor was "sort of like going to a doctor who will help me be a better mommy." Without blinking, she replied, "You'd better go every day." All of which is just to say I've spent some time in the school of brutal honesty!
