Bigger than a Baby!

“God Incarnate”!
This is truly a Bigger than BIG picture
- one that I have been trying to comprehend freshly as the commercial and secular version of Christmas burrows its way into my consciousness yet again!  God loving us so much that his son would come and live alongside us in a form that we can understand and relate to, so that the whole world can apprehend salvation and the fullness of His “shalom”.

The Heavens Declare=

This is so much bigger than the baby in a manger version and the fluffy Christmas cards!  This is the man sized version of Christmas that constitutes the best news that the world can ever receive – God engaging with us out of love: in our space, in our time-frame and in human form. This is the news that people go around the world to deliver, the news that causes people to change their career plans, uproot their families, take risks, and decide that, despite the global financial situation and common wisdom, there is something more valuable than big superannuation payouts.

As you celebrate God Incarnate this year, I pray that you will be struck again by the wonder of it all and that you will have opportunities to share this amazing story. Pray for those who will be sharing the story in places where the predominant belief system is different; many opportunities occur at this time as people of other faiths are happy to hear “the Christmas story”. One friend of mine, sharing with a Muslim friend, was exhorted “Tell me the end of the story too”!  Pray that there will be many who will come to faith this Christmas. Pray for those who translate the Bible so that more people can have access to this message in their own heart language.
