O God, may we not miss the true reason for the singing and celebration of Christmas. Please fill us with a wholehearted desire to do what is right in Jesus' name. Amen.

This is an extract of Today Vol.18 Nov-Dec Issue.

Let us remember the remarkable reasons that give rise to celebration and to holiness this season. Jesus came to make us children of God, offering us a future beyond imagining. We are reminded that He appeared so that He might take away our sins and destroy the devil's work. Both sin and devil had to be dealt with so that we might belong in life and in death to Christ.

"You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ."
"Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires."

May we take this Christmas occasion rejoice in the coming of our LORD!
