The fourth Wednesday of Advent

“The time came for Elizabeth to have her child, and she gave birth to her son; and when her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had lavished on her his faithful love, they shared her joy.” Luke 1:57-58 (NJB)
 

Elizabeth was once a barren woman, but her hope had just been born. Her miracle child John, whose name means, “God is gracious,” was evidence of God’s lavish, faithful love, and the joy of his birth, at long last, touched everyone around her. But John was not just proof that God loved Elizabeth. He bears witness to God’s extraordinary love for the whole world. For you!

“Prepare the way of the Lord!” he still cries in our hearts. This means God hasn’t given up on us. Redemption, salvation, forgiveness, and new life are possible; they are right upon us. Love is coming; he is what we’ve been waiting for, and he makes our waiting in such exquisite anticipation possible. Our prayer is simple this day before Christmas Eve:

“Come, Lord Jesus.”

    Elizabeth’s son, John, told us or those who would listen. His words points out to us a peculiar and choice thing above all others, and puts a difference between this Word, which is the Son of God, and the laws of God, which are also called the word of God.
    JOHN 1:4
    In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
    JOHN 1:14
    And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
    JOHN 3:36
    “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
    JOHN 3:16
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
    1 JOHN 4:10
    In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
    ROMANS 8:32
    He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
    JOHN 11:25
    Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.
    JOHN 14:6
    Our Saviour, Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; NO ONE comes to the Father but through Me.
    The Son of God is of one and the selfsame eternity or everlastingness, and of one and the selfsame essence or nature with the Heavenly Father. For GOD’s kingdom is the Kingdom and the power and the glory FOREVER!
    MATTHEW 6:31-34
    “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. James 1:26 We can make a large horse go wherever we want by means of a small bit in its mouth. And a small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot choose
