2 Corinthians 2:15-16 For we are the aroma of Christ for God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to the latter an odor of death that leads to death, to the former an odor of life that leads to life.
“My child on this holy night, ponder the life of your Infant King. See how those who were destined for salvation, the humble, the lowly, accepted with gratitude the gift offered, the sweet smell of eternal life. But to others, the smell of eternal life is an affront , for they are steeped in death and decay. That is why Herod sought the death of the Prince of Peace. Death begets death and many are the innocent who suffer for this. Child, there are many Herods in your day, those who feel threatened by life at its first moments, those who worship destruction and call it something else—they are white-washed tombs! My beloved, on this holy night, ponder the little Child whose life brought life to the world. Implore him to infuse into this culture of death a deep thirst for life. My child, pray on this night, and many favors will be granted.”
Jesus I thank you for this night of favor! Infant King, infuse into this culture of death a deep, abiding thirst for life. Let those who are plotting death be converted, and embrace life, for the glory of God! Jesus, Infant King, I adore you! Save souls! Amen.
