For God So Loved….

Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin

“Oh, it’s love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think”


Here we are, another Christmas upon us. And once again, as many christians do, I reflect on “the reason for the season”. This year I guess I dug a little deeper than other years past, and what I was confronted with was a simple truth. Yes, Jesus was born the Saviour King, because as Romans 3:23-24 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus”. So Jesus was sent to be a redeeming sacrifice, but why would a just and righteous God care to be bothered with all my nonsense? LOVE! John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Furthermore, John 3:17 says, For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”. We are redeemed because we are LOVED! This is not a new truth to me, but rather one that I had to be reminded of amid the hustle and bustle. I pray that you too know how much God loves you. 

As you fight the mall traffic and the short tempers and anger that the commercialized christmas season lays upon those around you, remember, it’s not just Christmas, but the day Love was born!

God Bless You All and a very Merry Christmas from Walking With The Son!

For your viewing pleasure here is my favorite Christmas song this season:



The Greatest Gift Of All

Christmas Offering by Paul Baloche


“Over the skies of Bethlehem appeared a star 
While angels sang to lowly shepherds
Three Wiseman seeking truth they traveled from afar
Hoping to find the child from heaven
Falling on their knees they bow before the humble Prince of Peace”

Do you remember when that light from above shined on you, telling you something special was about to happen? Did you seek out the source of it’s light, searching for a saviour or did you stumble into Bethlehem, ragged and tattered and torn? For most of us the trip to the saving grace of Jesus’ birth, life and atoning death was quite a journey. I wandered through the ‘desert’ for 40 years before coming to a knowledge of God’s only Son.

The first book I read in the bible was John;  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17. I need to fall on my knees daily and thank God for making a way to have everlasting life with Him. I am greatful to be able to declare I AM SAVED! If God doesn’t do another thing for me in this lifetime, that’s ok because he’s already given more than I deserve. I thank God for sending Jesus, the greatest gift of all.


Here’s a favorite of mine from my childhood:
