Squeezed in or Set Free?
The holidays are upon us. "'Tis the Season" we will hear...over and over and over again.
Men in red costumes, toys for all ages, everywhere, t.v. shows tantalizing all the senses....
And somewhere in all of the hubbub is Someone's birthday to celebrate!!
The Living Word invites us to be "new and different."
It says it this way, "Don't let the world system around you squeeze you into it's mold,
but be new and different..." (documented for us in Romans 12)
So, the question is: Are you crawling into the world's mold, allowing it to squeeze you into it's image OR are you walking in Truth, clean of cultural layers.....NEW and FREE?!!
No facts have changed.
Jesus, the Eternal One, chose to limit Himself, squeezing Himself into a human capsule, taking on all of humanity....all of God...in One.
He came, humbly, for two reasons:
1. To save us from ourselves
2. To show us how we then should live
The Gift is Himself.
The Giver is Himself.
HE desires to free you, not squeeze you into a mold.
May you choose wisely this CHRISTmas Season.....
The choice is in your heads, your heart, your hands....
May this be truly MERRY CHRISTSmas!!
Set free and loving Him,
