Christ-Mist

Christ's love gives gifts to His children like Victoria Falls gives water to the Zambezi River. Few dare stand directly under His love for fear of its power. Life thrives along the shore in the tumultuous mist of such power and glory! Those who have lived near it the longest call the mighty waterfall Mosi-oa-Tunya -  “The Smoke that Thunders.”

Likewise, those who have lived near God’s love long enough know the reckless abandon with which He pours His gifts of forgiveness, grace and love. The gifts Christ’s followers give to their own children can never compare. But how dare we not try!

Christmas is a time when the gift of Christ - who loving unconditionally was born to us "while we were yet sinners" – flows through those who have received His love. This is our chance to let the River – even just the gentle mist – flow through us to those we love.
