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 about 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 after this Friday’s edition, December 23–January 8. Look for my “Year in Review” post on January 8.
