She spent the first year of her life in a cold orphanage in China. Until someone paid the price and came a long way to make her part of their family. Our family.
As we celebrated her first Christmas with us, I couldn't help but think of the One who came a very long way - who paid a very high price - to make me part of God's family.
Jesus. The Baby in the manger. The Savior on the cross. To carry all the judgment for all my sin. And yours. The Bible says, "He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God" (1 Peter 3:18).
I love this - Jesus said, "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you" (John 14:18). And He has come to you this Christmas. Because we really are orphans in this world away from our Father in heaven - because of our sin. But Jesus loves you so much, He gave His life to have you with Him forever.
