Devotion for the Sixth Day of Christmas

Peace on earth redIsaiah 59:1-3
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not so short
That it cannot save;
Nor is His ear so dull
That it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
3 For your hands are defiled with blood
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken falsehood,
Your tongue mutters wickedness.

Our sins separate us from God. Without a Savior, our relationship with God would be forever broken, because we are sinners by nature. We cannot save ourselves. But God loved us so much that He sent His beloved Son, Himself in earthly form, to cleanse us of our sins, to give us His righteousness, and to reconcile us to the Father.

Thank You, Lord, that through the birth and death of Jesus, we are reconciled to You. Our sin no longer separates us, but we are now forgiven and reconciled to You. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
