There are only four days to Christmas! Yikes! Time to check my to-do list so all is ready. On Christmas, most of us probably cook different, dress different, act different, because we want Christmas to feel special. It is our Savior’s birthday!! We are so engaged and active! I wonder…can we adjust our thinking and behavior so that we act somewhat the same during the year? Not as busy, but heavily engaged in love for Jesus and family, the poor, homeless and lonely? Who says we can’t take lessons we put into practice this month, and use them all year? Think of the word, ‘present,’ as in offering something to someone. Not the actual gift, but the ACTION of giving something away… How do we present (give away) ourselves to God? As a worker!
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 NIV
Like the song goes, sort of…
On the fourth day before Christmas, the only thing I see…is Jesus wants His present to be me.
His presence is something He gives us always. Our present to Him is to always present ourselves, surrender to Him, be His “worker bee.” Can we also be counted on to present ourselves as a constant source of hope and help to others throughout the year? Be Jesus to them? Be their present?
I am not sure how much longer this crazy world will last, but let’s make every day count for God, by “presenting” ourselves.
Love and prayers to you all.
Just me, just His.
