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.

28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”
30 Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they went away peacefully.
