Let Us Never Forget What It Cost Jesus To Come Into A World That Hated Him

Jesus came into a world that hated him, remembering the prices Christ paid
A king who'd never met Him killed all the babies born in the vicinity of his birth in hopes of killing him (Matthew 2:16).

His own brothers mocked him (John 7:1-5).

His neighbors said He was no one special (Mark 6:3).

His own people who had hundreds of prophecies to confirm His coming, rejected Him, hated Him, bribed people to ask for His death, and made sure He was killed in a brutal way (John 1:11; Matthew 26-27).

When we think of Christmas, it's good to think of the tiny baby Jesus, heralded by rejoicing angels and visited by shepherds and kings.

But let's never forget what it cost that baby to offer life to a world that hated Him (1 Corinthians 6:20).

    2. Merry Christmas! Your devotionals are a blessing. I pull into parking lot at school, read a devo and have a minute of time with God before starting my crazy day as a 7th grade teacher. It really helps me prioritize before I walk in the door.
