If mankind does not want to come to God, God said, “I will come to you.” And He came, not as a ruthless ruler, but as an innocent Babe, amazing. And He did not come to destroy, but to save. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.” I wrote the following five years ago, and it bears repeating.
The wonder of Christmas:
1. He who was far off has come near
2. He who was invisible has become visible
3. He who was untouchable has now become touchable
4. He who was unreachable has now become reachable
5. He who was seated on a heavenly throne is now lying in a manger
6. He who was worshiped by millions of angels is now visited by a few humble shepherds
7. He who was (and is) Lord, became a servant washing His disciples’ feet
8. He who was rich, became poor so that we through His poverty might become rich! 2Cor.8:9. Oh come, let us adore Him!
Wishing all our family and friends a wonderful and blessed Christmas, while focussing, not on the many gifts, but on the greatest Gift of all. “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift. 2Cor.9:15.
