This Christmas you will go through the holidays and festivities and then you, like the shepherds, will return to normalcy. But, like the shepherds, you can be enriched and enthralled by God. Your life can have a particular sweetness when you see that the news we received on that great night was the greatest moment in history. It was the pinnacle of God’s glory, of creation’s purpose, and the pinnacle of your life, the moment God, for your sake became poor.
The Incarnation is the fullness of God IN the fullness of man so that we can receive the fullness of God FOR the fullness of man
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,and they shall call his name ‘Immanuel’”
For to us a child is bornTo us a Son is given.
