Your Monday Muse from For King & Country_December 2020

This season is both joyful and solemn.

This time of the year is both full of beauty and fraught with loneliness and pain.

This month of the year is both commercial and holy.

No matter how we view it, the truth as told in God’s word, is that Christmas is here for one reason…to point us to the cross. There was good new of great joy and Jesus was born a baby in a manger (cave or stable, depending on your interpretation) to bring us salvation. He was born to save us.


When you take away all the other traditions, decorations, treats, and gifts…only one thing is permanent, only one thing remains…the true REASON for this season.


God with us.


Holy of Holies.


“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14


Sweet Jesus,

Thank you! Thank you for coming to save us. Thank you for coming to earth to show us what real love means. Thank you for Christmas! We love you Lord and are so grateful for this season and the certainty that you see us, hear us, know us, and love us with an unending love. Amen.
