Is It Like Christmas Every Day? 

FEBRUARY 20 & 21, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Leviticus 9:5And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    If you presently have children or can remember your childhood, then you know what the days leading up to Christmas are like. The constant asking, “did I get…,” “may I open one…,” “how many do I get…,” and on and on. Anxiously waiting for the day when they find out what mom and dad have gotten them this year.

    As I read this passage, in my mind’s eye I get a similar picture of the children of Israel acting very much like a child who is waiting for Christmas day. They have prepared, done all they were commanded to do, and now all they can do is stand and wait. They stand waiting for direction, instruction, the voice, or the appearance of the Lord. Can you sense in your heart how they must have anticipated this day? What was going to happen next? What was God going to say through Moses? Everyone wanted to hear. Today’s verse says, “All the congregation drew near.” Everyone pressing closer and closer to hear what God had to say. No one wanted to get it second-hand, they all wanted to hear the Words of God for themselves. With wide eyes and hearts beating, they drew near to hear.

    We should approach God’s Word this way today. We now have Gods Word in our hands. It’s called the Bible. Do we draw near to what God has to say as the Children of Israel did? Or are we satisfied to hear it second-hand on Sunday, or from a friend? God’s Words hold the same power and promise today as they did back then.
   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    As you draw near to God’s Word today, before you begin, you might bow for a moment and ask God to place within your heart a fervent desire to hear from Him today. Devotionals are great, but if they do not point you to God and His Word, they are just another story. Get excited about hearing from God today.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
