Merry Christmas!

Christ's Example of Humility
[1] So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, [2] complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. [3] Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. [4] Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. [5] Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, [6] who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, [7] but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. [8] And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. [9] Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, [10] so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, [11] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
[Philippians 2:1-11]

This year we all received gifts we enjoyed and loved. It was precious to hear "Whoa!" and "Ooo!" come from Miles and Trenton multiple times per gift. It was also so awesome to see their eyes light up at the first sight of what they were unwrapping. But still, the most meaningful and greatest gift that has been given is the Father sending His Son, Jesus, to the world to redeem us sinners. That is a gift that cannot be beat. I want to make sure that I still have that passion and awe while I praise God for the gift of my salvation!
