Day 22: Four Babies


Will I sacrifice my ETERNITY for things of this world?

ETERNITY is for everyone,

as no one dies forever

because there is a place

that we will ALL live forever,

and it is our choice

where we will spend it.

Now this doesn't sound very falalalala

and all CHRISTMASY

but it is.

As I look at the BABY in my nativity

I realize I actually have

4 BABY JESUSES,

all different~

One from Charlie Brown's Christmas.

One of giant felt.

One of pewter.

One of fine china.

Hmm,

without even trying

I just "happened" to have all these nativities that are surrounding me.

I know that sounds absurd,

as I don't collect nativities,

but I started laughing

as it just "organically" happened~

as don't we surround ourselves with what

and who we love?

4 different BABY JESUSES~

yet

One size fits all.

One BABY

all dressed differently,

whether to speak to a child's heart

or to a grown adult.

JESUS~

One size fits all

because HE came for ALL~

“Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for

ALL the people" (Luke 2:10)

And HE died for ALL~

"HE died for everyone so that those who receive HIS new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for CHRIST, who died and was raised for them" (2 Corinthians 5:15)

ALL means ALL.

Not just the good.

Not just the happy.

Not just the ones who look good & happy.

ALL~

the fallen

the sad

the lonely

the confused

the depressed

the lost

the ______.

FOR ALL!

JESUS~

One size fits ALL.

No matter what my JESUS looks like,

even as a grown up gumby,

HE is JESUS

that fits

every season

every emotion

every age group

every problem

every falling short of the perfection of GOD

because

HE is the PERFECT

that covers us

that welcomes us into

ETERNITY

that is life beyond this,

and that is forever.

Your choice. My choice. ALL people's choice.

To wear JESUS forever or not to wear JESUS forever,

because when it is all said and done

we will ALL come before GOD

when HE calls us HOME,

but ALL won't enter into

THE PERFECT ETERNITY

where JESUS has gone to prepare a place for you & me & ALL who believe.

Give yourself the best gift money can't buy

and pass it along to ALL who you know

so that

when this life is all said and done

we are ALL feasting with our

BABY JESUS

who was born

for ALL to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE~

because isn't HE ALL we have ALL been searching for?

Therefore,

"GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN" (listen to the song below)
