ADVENT MEDITATION ~ Day 14




Advent Meditation

Day 14


Year of Our LORD

12.14.2008



For The LORD is great,

and greatly to be praised:

HE is to be feared above all gods.


For all the gods of the nations are idols:

but The LORD made the Heavens.

Psalm 96: 4,5


Does the LORD love His+ people... those who have entered into His+ covenant through repentence, conversion, and water baptism? YES.

How is it, then, that we are to fear the ONE+ Who+ loves us most... the ONE+ Who+ loves us so much that HE sent HIS Only-Begotten SON+ into this woeful world to die for us?

Could it be that The LORD is not a respecter of persons? ... that HE+ is not impressed by our knowledge... our skills.... our abilities ? [since HE+ gave them all to us in the first place.]

What The LORD requires of each one of us is simple:

our ALL.

It is the only gift

we can lay on the altar of HIS+ love

... that will be accepted by HIM+.

O LORD of my Life, I thank you for Your GLORY and Your MAJESTY; I rest in Your HOLINESS. Help me to lose my life in THEE+... completely, utterly, with no looking back. I lay my life on the altar of Your LOVE, O HOLY ONE+. In the name of the Beloved SON+, Our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, I offer these, my imperfect prayers.

Amen
