Twist of Faith #68 - Nativity

Do you sometimes think we miss the point?  I love the lights, the decorated trees, the songs, the gifts....but do we miss what Christmas is really about?  Jesus entered this world as a baby.  No trumpets sounding or tinsel in that stable.  He could have come to Earth in any form - but He chose to come as a baby.  Think about that.  A baby is so helpless and dependent.  But our Savior, the One who would grow up and die on that cross for our sins - the One who would do miracles and wonders - the One who had created the universe - the One that WAS - came to this earth in the form of a helpless baby.  And born in a stable.  Our King - our Savior - the Lord of All - born in a stable.  WOW!

This week at Twist of Faith we celebrate Christmas by remembering what it truly is all about - the Nativity. 

Our sponsor this week is MelonHeadz.  I love MelonHeadz images - they are so fun and easy to color!  I colored my image with Spectrum Noir markers and then I found a freebie sentiment on the MelonHeadz blog to go along with the image.

I hope you come over and join us at Twist of Faith this week as we celebrate Jesus coming the Earth!  God bless you today and thank you for stopping by.  Merry CHRISTmas!!!!
