especially blessed this
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…”
Someone asked a little boy whose father was deployed what he would like for Christmas. The boy looked at the picture of his father framed on the mantle and said, “I want my father to step out of that frame.”
Isn’t that exactly what God did? God stepped over the threshold of eternity in the person of His Son, Jesus, and He “became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.”
Jesus is the answer to the void in every human heart. He is the answer for the heart longing to be loved. He is the answer for the hopeless in the dark of the night. He is the answer to the heart crying for a father to be next to him. He is the answer for the sin in our heart to be cleansed that we might live with Him forever.
The angels sang at His birth, proclaiming, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will among men.”
Those who receive Jesus as personal Lord and Savior receive this pronouncement of the peace of God in their hearts—and with peace comes joy, and with joy comes forth a song of melodious praise to God.
Because of Jesus, we can join the angelic choir and sing, “Glory to God in the highest.” Atheiests can sing no such song, for to them, God does not exist. Buddhists can offer no inspiring anthems or soul-felt hallelujahs among their incessant chants, for their gods have no ears to hear. Muslims have only dreary dirges that reveal no glad hope for the present or future to them.
Oh how the world needs Jesus. Christ alone is the transcendent gift of love from the Father to the world. What better gift can you give anyone this Christmas Season than to tell them how to receive God’s Greatest Gift?
