December 22

[Today’s post follows the reading of December 22 in The Dawning of Indestructible Joy.]

“This is the covenant that I will make… I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Hebrews 8:10

And he would powerfully move into our lives and write his will on our hearts so that we are not constrained from the outside but are willing from the inside–to love him, and trust him and follow him.

John Piper, The Dawning of Indestructible Joy, page 68*

How has the Babe in a manger written His will on your heart this season? Are you feeling constrained or released?

A new year is fast approaching. Have you considered how you might love, trust, and follow Him in new and deeper ways?

Jesus, You completed in Your birth, death and resurrection what I could never do on my own. Write Your truth on my heart that I might love and trust and follow hard after You. Amen.
