Take a Bough
All year that corner lot lies dormant, seemingly worthless. But as temperatures drop like your holiday bank balance, that lonesome lot comes to life with purpose, value and visibility. Suddenly it’s populated with a forest of Christmas trees and signs that shout, “Don’t wait too late to decorate!”
CHRIST – mas –tree
It was “mas” – “My Awful Sins” that drove God’s Son to that cruel, cross-shaped tree where He took all our sins so that you and I can be completely, forever forgiven!
When you, by faith, accept God’s pardon, the “mas” in “CHRISTmas tree” explodes with new meaning: “mas” – “My Amazing Salvation!”
Whenever you see a Christmas tree, will you remember this? God has erased your awful sins and offers you amazing salvation.
"God put the wrong on him who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.” 2Corinthians 5:21
