Merry Christmas, church family. Perhaps you are reading this after opening presents with family. You are sipping cocoa still in your pajamas, and the fire is burning hot and Christmas music is playing in the background. It's a glorious day for God is with us!
I love the way Max Lucado put it-how God became man. He writes, "It all happened in a most remarkable moment...a moment like no other...God became a man. Divinity arrived. Heaven opened herself and placed her most precious one in a human womb.
The omnipotent, in one instant, became flesh and blood. The one who was larger than the universe became a microscopic embryo. And he who sustains the world with a word chose to be dependent upon the nourishment of a young girl. God had come near."
He gave up his place with God and made himself nothing. He was born to be a man and became like a servant. -Philippians 2:7
Prayer for Today
We thank you, O God, that you are with us. You are above us, you are beside us, you are behind us, you are before us, you are in us, you are with us. Thank you. Amen.
