Countdown to Christmas - Day 19

"And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered...
So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David,
to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child."
~ Luke 2:1, 3-5

Isn't it a beautiful thing to know that we who are saved are registered in the Book of Life? That God has grafted us into His family tree? That we will one day leave this world, our temporary home, and return from whence we came? To be in the eternal Presence of our holy Father?

Lord, we thank You for the invitation to Your wedding banquet. We thank You that through Your Son, Jesus Christ, we are able to sit at Your table and sup with You. We look forward to the day when we will come home for eternity...
