Most of my novels have been written over a series of lunch breaks. True story! Often, I sit in my car on my lunch break to write.
Fast forward to winter. I hate the cold, so sitting in my car and shivering as I write ranks pretty low on the list. Yet to really write, I need the solitude and quiet.
So I watch the weather closely. See, if the sun is out, even if the temp is only in the thirties or forties, the sun warms the car enough for it to be quite comfortable.
The sun makes all the difference.
As I was contemplating this, God changed the spelling. The SON makes all the difference.
It’s a good reminder, especially as Christmas approaches. We wouldn’t have Christmas without Christ – the Son of God. We wouldn’t have forgiveness of sin without the Savior – the Son of God. We wouldn’t have hope, or peace, or the promise of eternity without the Son.
You see, the Son makes all the difference.
In fact, scripture tells us “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” John 3:16-18.
So as you prepare for Christmas, remember that it’s the Son we celebrate. We love our family, enjoy our festivities, but it’s the Son who makes the day special. More importantly, it’s the Son who loves us and promises eternal security to all who believe in Him.
