Christmas is as much about preparing a place for Jesus as it is about the preparing heart of God.
In week two of our Advent series at Northplace Church, I shared how the act of preparation is an outward sign of love. The psalmist reminds us that God prepares a place for us in the presence of our enemies (Psalm 23:5) because of His love. An expectant mother prepares a place for her soon coming child because of her love. The Christmas story reminds us of the Father’s painstaking preparation to send us His only son – this was the greatest gift, and it was because of His love.
Even in the Christmas season, we are earnestly preparing a place for the ministry opportunities that lay ahead because of our love for forgotten people in forgotten places. When you prayed, when you gave, and when you told us you wanted to learn more about Lonesome Dove Ranch, we knew you shared that same love.
Now there is an opportunity to share that love once again and to be a part of the preparation. Click below to learn how you can give a gift this Christmas that will help to prepare a place for hurting children at Lonesome Dove Ranch.
For the broken,
