Daily D – Luke 2:21 | Galatians 4:4-5
Luke 2:21 When the eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus — the name given by the angel before he was conceived.
Galatians 4:4, 5 When the time came to completion, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. (CSB)
God’s timing is perfect.
God’s love is limitless.
God’s purpose is the redemption and adoption of all people everywhere who will receive by faith God’s gift that was made possible by the work of his Son.
Jesus was fully human – “born of a woman.”
Jesus is fully divine – “He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God,” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Christmas is bigger, better, and broader than we have ever celebrated.
I will lean more fully into Christmas that I may more fully comprehend the crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus.
Our Father, I have lessons to learn about Christmas. Teach me. Grow my understanding. Deepen my appreciation for all you did then in just the right place at just the right time and in just the right way. Amen.

Jeremiah 18:1-4 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

Jeremiah 17:7, 8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
2 Chronicles 35:25 Jeremiah composed laments for Josiah, and to this day all the male and female singers commemorate Josiah in the laments. These became a tradition in Israel and are written in the Laments. (NIV)
