“Glory to God in the highest heaven,This is what it all comes down to. The whole heavenly host come out just to sing it. Glory is given to God. This is right, because God is deserving of our glory. In fact, God is the only One deserving.
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” ~Luke 2:14
What do we get? Peace. This is beyond our undertanding. We can think we understand it. But we know, deep down, we don't.
See, we come to this God-man relationship offering nothing. I could sugar-coat that for you since it's the holidays and all, but let's be honest. We're in a big heap of trouble and we have no actual solution.
But God, planning as only He can, prepares and foretells and gives us Jesus. I'm not saying that our lives as Christians become a cake-walk, though that would be yummy. But now we have an answer. And not a 12-step, apply twice daily, take this pill kind of answer. This is miracle beyond miracles!
God is worthy of our glory. We don't need it anymore. So give God the glory that is due Him.
