It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with Lisa Jo of The Gypsy Mama. She gives us a word each Friday and we get to write on it for five minutes flat. Our word for today is WONDER.
Wonder can be defined as an emotion comparable to surprise that people feel when perceiving something rare or unexpected. What do I think of when I hear the word WONDER?
I think of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three in one. Amazing, awesome, overwhelming at times but ...oh so wonderful.
My heart overflows with thankfulness as I consider the real meaning of Christmas.
To think that God loved me so much that He wanted to be in relationship with me. But the only way I could know Him was to be without sin and that wasn't possible. So He sent Jesus into this world, fully human and yet fully Divine. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross for my sins and yours.
When I received this amazing gift personally, my name was written in the Lamb's Book of Life. I was forgiven and free to be in relationship with God.
Does that fit the definition of wonder? You bet it does.
The wonder of the gift of Christmas. It's a gift that's free to each one of us.
Blessings and love,
