O Come, O Come Emmanuel!


The Christmas season is finally here!!! Now the decorations are acceptable, the music is joyous, and there’s a certain buzz in the air!


With all of the heartbreaking events coming out of Mississippi and across seas, I don’t think Christmas could have come at a better time! There’s a certain hope and joy that comes with this season. An anticipation of GOOD things.

The other day I was singing “Jesus Loves the Little Children” to my son Liam. In light of current events I stopped as tears came to my eyes… “Red and yellow, black and white. They are PRECIOUS in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.” Jesus loves the little children… ALL the children of the world. It doesn’t matter our race, our background, our past mistakes, our economic status. Jesus loves us ALL. When we come to know Jesus, there aren’t any barriers in becoming one…

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

That’s one reason why Christmas is so special…Jesus didn’t come for a certain type of person…. Jesus came to save us ALL. Jesus is the picture of grace, justice, peace, kindness. That sweet little baby lying in the manger was the hope the crazy fallen world needed. He is the prize. He is the treasure. He’s the gift. He’s the excitement in the air. THE KING IS COMING!

O come, O come Emmanuel!

    I came across this post too late to join the giveaway, but I just wanted to say thank you for your words. There is so much being said and written on the topic of race right now and this is the first time I’ve read a post that focused on the truth: It’s about Jesus. All about Jesus. Nothing else matters. Thank you for speaking that truth.
