Beyond Christmas

14 Aug

Beyond Christmas…

The Hebrew Almah Miryam is the Virgin Mary. We have so many songs about her. It’s been the theme of art and music for two thousand years.

However it rarely goes deeper to the truth. It wasn’t just Virgin and Child. It was Virgin and Responsibility. We tend to downplay that part.

If you’ve received the Lord’s new life, then you have the newborn presence of God in your life. If you think that it’s going to be all Christmas Carols, you’re in for a rude awakening.

That seems to be the problem with many of our walks. We want the Christmas experiences, but we don’t want the responsibility. We want the new life but we don’t want anything to take care of. We don’t want the sacrifice involved with having a treasure.

If you want the life and presence of God, then you have to take the responsibility. You’ve got a newborn. That means you have to take care of this life, cherish, protect, sacrifice for it, and treasure it.

You’ve been blessed with the greatest of blessings, but remember, life isn’t neat and blessings must be treasured.

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

What responsibility has God entrusted you with? Seek to fulfill your charge with more passion and excellence today – For with the blessing comes the responsibility.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
