The Amazing "Forever" of the Christmas Story

Here's the most amazing fact of the Christmas story. It is eternal. God's Son zipped-on human skin, became a person and lived with us for a while. the implications of "Immanuel" (God with us) can be both heartening and unsettling. Heartening because of the comfort found, and unsettling because of the personal closeness of it all. In Jesus, God doesn't look down at us from a safe distance. He is right here right now, even in the Person of His Spirit.

That leaves us with some responsibility in the Christmas story. You see, God's son came for a purpose. All others were born so that they would live. He was born that He would die, a sacrificial death by the Lamb of God for our sins. Oh, the wonder of it all!

FOR TODAY: Thank God for that wondrous act of the Creator taking on the form the creature.
