I lay it down of my own initiative — John 9-11

This being Christmas Eve, I’ll keep it short — for your sake and mine.

It’s John 10:18 that caught my eye tonight. It is one of the things that makes Jesus’ coming and death unique and effective — that he came and died if His own free will. Sacrificial animals may have been innocent, but they died against their will. Not so with Jesus. as you consider Christ’s birth tonight, remember how deliberate it was for you and me and glorify God with the angels!!

See you tomorrow, Lord willing.
