Advent Devotions - Day 2

Luke 2:1: In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.

A decree can be a declaration, judgment, announcement, a ruling. What is your life announcing today? What do your words, your actions, declare about you? What judgments might a casual observer draw from the facts of your life today? You are being watched every day by more people than you can begin to imagine. Now this is not written to make you feel paranoid or horribly guilty, but to free you. As noted in the December 1st devotion, Christ frees us from our past, including our sins and blunders. You have a choice to make today – your can choose your words and actions (and reactions). Christ is here to make your life (right this moment) as new and clean as a freshly cut Christmas tree. He declares His love for you in each moment – you are most precious to Him. Let your life announce Him in your heart by word and deed, beginning now. Take this day and gift it back to Jesus, and affirm your relationship with Him by spending time wrapped in His love (through prayer and reading His word, the Bible).
