Under His Opposite
So, this is Christmas. A busy time. A commercial time. A time of joy. And sorrow, too. A time of presents. A time for family. For turkey. A time to travel. All this is a part and parcel of our Christmas celebration.
And a time for Christ. Christmas is a mystery. Because God is at work. And how is he at work? Under his opposite. In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God and the word began flesh.
God became flesh. And what flesh? The flesh of the weak baby Jesus. There is nothing more defenseless than a newborn baby. And God who is almighty became this defenseless baby. Under his opposite.
And why would God do this? Because God loves us. Because God loves you. Not only you, but also you. And because God loves us he is prepared to do everything to restore a right relationship with us. A relationship broken by sin. This is the mission of Jesus. To restore our relationship with God. This is the flesh part. He does so by dying on the cross. Which secures our forgiveness.
This is how much our almighty God loves us. By becoming a defenseless baby. Merry Christmas.
