As you know, today is Christmas! It is the day we celebrate the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ and revisit the traditional Christmas story.
To some, I know that the story of baby Jesus gets redundant and tiring. I admit that sometimes I feel this way as well. It starts to feel like the same old, same old and we overlook the majesty of it all.
If you truly think about it, it’s absolutely crazy. And through it all, we are still invited to have a relationship with the Almighty. there is no way we deserve it, but He gives it freely. It doesn’t make sense, but it is exactly what I need.
We all want to be loved, deep down. So who wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who always loves? It’s not the love that will always do what you want.. That’s not really love anyways. It’s the kind of love that does what you NEED. And sometimes, it’s going to be really hard and uncomfortable, but if you are willing to be shaped.. Beautiful things are going to happen.
Sometimes, I wonder if Jesus knew he would be coming as a baby and born in a feeding trough. I wonder if he asked God if he could just skip the early stages and just get to the point in his life where he starts doing miracles. I wonder a lot of things.. But one thing I do not wonder about is the fact that he did come. He did save us. And he does love us.
Stay fresh, God bless.
