The Twelve Thoughts of Christmas - Day 12

I remember sitting behind a beat-up car at a stoplight: smashed rear fender, bald tires, trunk held shut with a rope, rear window cracked, and a sticker on a hanging bumper that read: “This is not an abandoned car.”  Christmas is God putting a sticker on the manger that reads: “This is not an abandoned world.”  When we could never reach up to God, God came down to us in His Son.  When we could never solve our sin and death problem on our own, God sent His Son to solve it for us.  So here’s the twelfth of The Twelve Thoughts of Christmas: We are not forgotten or forsaken or abandoned—God is with us … and always will be.  Merry Christmas!


  1. Thanks for Sharing these Christmas Thoughts Bro. John. So wonderful to know that our God has not abandoned us in a corrupt and sinful world but is willing to make each of us a new creation if we will but come and confess our need for Him (II Cor. 5:17) Continued Blessings on you and FBC Hot Springs :)

  2. Thanks so much, Charles. Happy new year to you and your family. I appreciate your friendship and prayers.
