“So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” John 1:14 (NLT)
In the darkest of times, Jesus came. He came quietly, without much pomp and celebration. He came to an impoverished couple: a teenage girl and her fiancee. His birth was declared to shepherds. And magi came later with gifts usually given for the dead. God came in a way so that every human in every walk of life could connect with him. He brought light in darkness, freedom from bondage, hope in despair. He came to free us from that which we could not free ourselves: from sin.
In darkness there is light. And his name is Jesus Christ.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5 (NLT)
Merry Christmas my friends!
