“Christmas is God Getting Personal”
John 1:14 says, “The Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.”
He lived among us. He donned the costliest of robes, a human body. He became a friend of the sinner and a brother of the poor. He touched their sores and felt their tears and paid for their mistakes. And to all of us frightened ones, He shared the same message: “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me…I will come again and receive you to Myself” (John 14:1).
And how do we respond? Some pretend He doesn’t exist. Others hear Him, but don’t believe Him. Still others say Jesus is not relevant to our modern world. A few maintain He’s done nothing to make the world a better place.
But then, a few decide do decide to trust Jesus. And when He calls your name, be ready. Look up. He will reach down and make your heart His manger, through His indwelling Holy Spirit, and make your future home His glorious heaven.
Christmas is not an add-on, self-improvement religion. Christmas is God becoming flesh, our flesh, getting personal, getting so personal He is calling us by our individual names……
