To a world marked with sin, corruption, shame, guilt, anger and lust. During a time of deep regional social unrest, God incarnate came to a dumpy little town to be born in a cave to a pregnant teenager. He was unknown and was faced with death from His first tiny breathes. It wasn’t an accident, it was a sovereign God’s perfect plan from eternity past. The ruler of creation came to be born a baby; to save an undeserving people who God dearly loved.
Do two things today: 1. Spend time as a family thanking God for Jesus. 2. Sit down and read the Christmas story in Luke 2 as family. Celebrate certainly, but celebrate in awe of a gracious God.
Merry Christmas! The Messiah has come!
