Got What I Wanted

It’s Christmas. Did you get what you wanted? If you did, you know a pleasant and satisfying feeling. Your hopes are fulfilled, the waiting and anticipation paid off.

What did I want at Christmas? Good food. Good wine. My family gathered around the table. Peace and joy. Guess what? I got what I wanted.

And these same gifts are what God offers to us in Jesus Christ. Here we are, gathered at the Table with family. We have the best food and wine, the Lord Jesus offering Himself to us. Our sins are forgiven before God and men. We are at peace. 

We look around and see our brothers and sisters. They, too, partake, and we see that in Jesus, all is right with the world. Joy Noel! Just what we wanted.
