At the Christmas season we may so focus on the Babe in the manger that we forget the greatness of the Godhead: the Father who send Him to save us; the Son who paid for our sins on the cross setting us free; and the Holy Spirit who opened our eyes so that we saw Jesus as the Savior we so desperately needed. Today’s devotional helps who refocus, remembering what a great God we have!
Because of Calvary,
John 4:22-24 (ESV)
22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
“God is a Spirit (Joh. 4:24), eternal (Deu. 33:27), infinite (Rom. 1:17-20), incomprehensible (Job. 11: 7), perfect, and unspeakably glorious in his being, attributes, and works (Gen. 17:51; Isa. 6: 3; Exo. 33:20). ‘The eternal God.’ ‘Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord’ (Jer. 23:24). ‘Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight’ (Heb. 4:13; Pro. 15:11).” [The Works of John Bunyan II, (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1854), p. 414]
