Jesus is God, God is Watching How We Celebrate God Becoming Flesh.
He knows the world won’t consider Him, festivities get in the way. Besides, the world doesn’t believe. Jesus is watching God’s children, those who received Him. I can almost visualize the gifts He has prepared for the children. They are epiphany moments that make life easier. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.” (Psalm 23:1-2NASB)
These are the gifts that we need: Insights that change the quality of our lives by producing peace instead of chaos. God’s gifts often come as trials refining our faith, which then replaces anxiety with rest. “He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3NASB)
His children have reason to celebrate. We have been redeemed and now our lives are being led in the right direction, “For His Name’s sake.” Have a very merry Christmas, and remember those who have need.
“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Galatians 4:4-5 NASB)
