Merry Christmas – 2019

Every year we contemplate the wondrous mystery of the Incarnation. The eternal God coming to us in the form of a baby. And his name is called Jesus.

J.I. Packer wrote in his book Knowing God:

“The Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as this truth of the Incarnation.”

To think on this mystery is one of the great joys of this season. He did this for us!

Have a blessed Christmas!

P.S. Our agency will be taking a break from blogging December 24–January 5. Look for my “Year in Review” post on January 6.

    All through the dark dim dreadful years,
    he taught us how to sin,
    to take counsel of our fears,
    and not the grace within.
    He thought that he could win us all
    by appealing to our pride
    as he did to Adam at the fall
    and lure us to his side.
    He thought that we would chose to stand
    with his host in hell
    that we’d not listen, nor understand
    the things that God might tell.
    Then he saw the Babe in golden straw
    and knew he’d lost, by ancient law.

    Thank you, Steve. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

    When you think of all that Jesus left in Glory to come to earth, become a human like the rest of us, and live a perfect, sinless life for us, and then to suffer the unimaginable on that old rugged cross, it should fill your heart with love for God. That’s what this season is all about for me. Love, true love. Unconditional love.

    Someone made the comment to me that they didn’t understand why so many people have to talk about the Crucifixion when it’s all about the birth of Jesus. When I mentioned the fact that the Child was wrapped in swaddling cloth, a cloth commonly used to wrap the dead for burial and that it was a sign of His future, the picture became clear. Jesus was born in a rugged stable, wrapped in swaddling cloth, and destined to die on a rugged cross. And He did it all for me. Praise God! Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Merry and reverent Christmas! I, too, have been thinking on the humility of God: that in order to invite us to be adopted into His family, He first had to ask us to adopt Him into ours.

    Hi Guys, just thought I should share this with you: Jesus was born a child to the world, but to us-his faithfull sons and daughters- he was born a Son, a Son that was given to save a world walking in darkness. It is true that we were once children of darkness, but now we’ve been adopted by christ. I do not agree that Jesus was born on chrismas, but what I do agree on is that Jesus is born in our lives the day we accept him and receive has our lord and personal saviour.
