Charles Stanley (December-05-2021) Daily Devotional: Sunday Reflection: A Gift For The World

As Christians, we have the best reason to celebrate joyfully at Christmas: we were given the eternally perfect gift of Christ.

Another busy Christmas season is upon us, and the next few weeks will be overflowing with parties, gifts, and good cheer. However, this time is especially meaningful for Christians, who recognize the reason for such joy: Our Savior came to rescue us from sin and death, and He will come again in glory to make all things new (Matt. 1:21 - ``She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."; Revelation 21:4-5 - and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." And He who sits on the throne said, ``Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, ``Write, for these words are faithful and true).

Thanks to Christ, the One who has overcome the world, we can experience true peace. And this blessing will continue into eternity, where we will dwell forever with our heavenly Father (John 16:33 - These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world; 2 Pet. 1:10-11 - Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you). As members of the Christian community, we should celebrate this truth every day and share it with those around us. The gladness that binds us together in unity is our gift to the world, and when it is evident, people can’t help but be drawn in.

Think about it -  Do you think of the kingdom of God primarily as a present reality or a future inheritance? How does that view shape your understanding of Christian community?
