Christ. Eternal Son of God. Infinite. Almighty. Creator. Heir of all things. Upholding the world by the word of his power. He looked down on us with love and, without ceasing to be God, took on our human nature. God-Man. God, yet without the unapproachable glory. Man, yet without sin. Limited. Mortal. Frail. Why?
He became a man because the death of a man who was more than man was needed. The incarnation was God’s locking himself into death row. Christ did not risk death. He embraced it. That is precisely why he came: not to be served but to serve and give his life a ransom for many.
We celebrate Christ being born. But so much more, we celebrate WHY he was born. And that is to take on Himself the wrath that was ours. We reflect on Mary & Joseph, human just like us, but chosen for a divine task. Most importantly this day, we celebrate our SAVIOR.
Have a blessed Christmas!
