These are the silly reindeer that are in my yard right now. I know they have nothing to do with Christmas, but I still like them. My JOY sign is behind them, and that is what we want people to see, with the manger scene in it.

Have you ever considered why God would send His son to save us? He could have spoken salvation into existence, or used someone other than His son, or who know what to bring us to Himself, but He chose to send His one and only son. His Son was part of Him, of who He was, He was a treasure, especially since He couldn't be replaced.

Why not use another option, since He is God. He could do anything that He wanted to, but this was the only option in His estimation. What would cause a Holy Righteous God, to let go of heaven's jewel? Do you want to know the answer? It may shock you, but it was you. That's right, God looked to  eternity future, and desired that you would be His own. You are worth it, according to God. These are not my words, they are His.

"We love because he first loved us." {1John 4:9 }      " I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. "  {Jeremiah 1:5}      "For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight."  {Ephesians 1:4 }
