We pray you're having a blessed Christmas season with family. We pray that you enjoy it to the full, but remember who we're celebrating. Although myriads of "Santa Clause- be nice to your neighbor because its the spirit of Christmas" movies abound.... We're not celebrating that at all. We're celebrating JESUS. Christmas is the celebration of His choosing to come to earth the HARD WAY! Think about it... couldn't he have come with the finest clothes, finest transportation, finest entourage.... but He chose this way... humble, innocent, vulnerable.
He came as a baby, naturally birthed by a young woman touched by God's own hand. His birth was witnessed by people of extremely lowly status. (People we wouldn't invite to a worm wrestle... He invited to witness his birth..) His birth was witness by King-makers of VIP status...
And WHY did He do this? To die the HARD way to purchase for us an eternity with HIM. WOW.
It makes you look at how many times you choose to do things the easy way, doesn't it???
He didn't do things that way.... Hmmmmmmm
Something we can't do in Africa, going sledding on Christmas morning!
