Promise from Psalm 24:3-6

"Who may go up on the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy Temple? Only those with clean hands and pure hearts, who have not worshiped idols, who have not made promises in the name of a false god. They will receive a blessing from the Lord; the God who saves them will declare them right."


If God is not the center of my thoughts and actions, someone or something else is in that position. Abandoning oneself to God means, riding yourself of the worldly stuff and consciously living for God. Your words, your actions, your motives all come from the Holy Spirit within you. So as we begin this Christmas season, I am spending more time in the Word, to fill my thoughts with my Lord and Savior, not Santa Claus. With giving, not receiving. With serving others, not running from store to store to catch a sale. With a greater focus on the miracle of the birth and the GREATEST gift God has ever given to humanity. Most of all telling the story to my grandchildren who need to know what this season is all about. Jesus is the reason for the season.
