Oh, How He Loves Us

December 14, 2010 Donna New

Luke 2:11 “For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord.” The Lord must have loved David to allow the city to be called after him. It wasn’t just Bethlehem it was David’s town…as if the Lord had sweet memories of David.

David wrote a lot of Psalms praising God, some out of fear then remembering God’s goodness and past rescue, some out of anger then knowing God would take revenge not him. David was so honest with God. Then Bathsheba happened. And David needed forgiveness. He found it and he found a wise woman in Bathsheba. In spite of his sin of adultery and murder he found grace in God’s eyes. His family became full of violence but his relationship with the Lord remained steady and even sweet.

God sees us through eyes of forgiveness. This town I live in is Donna’s town. The town you live in is yours in God’s eyes. It’s because you live there and we are loved in spite of our sin. God is so gracious and so tender. There’s no one like Him to forget sin. We should be so forgiving.

As Christmas approaches, our hearts should start the process of forgiving those who have offended us, whether the offense is large or small. The Lord called it the town of David. May we be like David, affectionate to God and praising Him. May we be like the Lord, forgiving and loving His children with sweet memories.
