A Sense of Wonder

December 24, 2010

“I will be a Father to Him and He shall be a Son to Me…” – Hebrews 1:5

One day a bird caught in our chimney flew into our house. We tried desperately to get it out the door, but it didn’t get the message. After a while, totally frustrated, I had the ridiculous thought, “If I could become a bird for a few seconds and talk its language, I could show it how to be free.” Then I remembered that God did just that.

The Creator of the universe became one of His own creatures – a man – in order to communicate perfectly with mankind. Jesus took on a human body and personality, with all its limitations, so you and I could understand how to be free to live and have a relationship with God.

This is really what Christmas is all about. God chose to reveal Himself to us in the form of a baby, Jesus Christ. When we get to know the God who loves us so much that He would humble Himself to become a man, then Christmas always has a sense of wonder.
