Decorate With Your Eyes On Jesus

Lets ask the Lord to give us eyes to see Him in our Christmas traditions.  HeDSC05404lp us Lord to see you in all that we do.  It’s a very busy time of year, but help us take the time to see you.

The Christmas Tree

We most likely, all have one of these beauties in our home and spend many hours devoted

to the preparation of that special tree.

It is a lot of fun and very beautiful, but have we kept our Christmas tree Christ centered?

The Tree can be a wonderful way to glorify Jesus .  Through our spiritual eyes let us see the great meaning

there can be in these branches and decorations.

The evergreen tree…..(Everlasting)

Jesus is everlasting:  Psalm 90:2 “Even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”

Jesus never changes:Hebrews 13:8  “He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end,”  Revelation 22:13

The trunk of the tree and the branches…..

Jesus is the vine or trunk of the tree: John 15:5  “I am the vine, ye are the branches.”

Jesus is the vine, the source, and the branches are connected to Him.  If the branch be separated from the vine they will surely die.

Jesus is like the tree….Isaiah 53:18  “He was cut off out of the land of the living.”  Yes He was cut off  just like our Christmas tree was cut off.

Many Christmas trees, when you purchase them, are nailed to a cross!  Especially those

on the traditional Christmas tree Lots.  The tree was cut off out of the land of

the living, and nailed to a Cross like Jesus was.  Remember His death as we look at our

tree this Christmas.  So often at Christmas we think of Jesus as the Christ

Child, a baby in the manger.  The most important thing to remember is Jesus the Lord, who died for the remission of our sins.

He went to the Cross for us.

The Hope of a tree….

“If it be cut down, it will sprout again, and the tender branch there of shall not cease.”Job 14:7

Yes, Jesus rose again from the grave and the tender branches, who are us, the Church, have never ceased.  The tree just keeps growing and growing.

That is our hope!  Our hope is in our tree, Jesus Christ who is risen! Hallelujah!

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
