“Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!”
Christmas is the greatest miracle the world has ever seen. The very Creator who spoke the world into existence humbling Himself, stepping down out of Heaven, taking on flesh, and becoming like you and me. It is unthinkable that the King of all kings, enthroned in Glory, would come to our broken world to make us whole. He did this to save us and show us the way back to the Father. Up to this point, there had already been an incredible display of Heaven’s power and miraculous breakthrough in the story of God – but nothing like this.
“Here and now
Light in the darkness
Here and now
Hope for the hopeless
In this Christmas season, take time to remember this miracle of miracles, this hope that now lives forever. Take time to slow down and feel the gravity of what Jesus has done and what it means for you and your life. A miracle is possible for you. Hope is available to you. He proved He is for us, and now nothing can stand against us. The King has come to dwell with us!
Jesus, I welcome the miraculous power of Your presence into my life this season. Fill me again with wonder and awe at Your coming. I want to rejoice in the hope that Christmas holds. I praise You today for crossing the distance to rescue my heart. I surrender to you again. I love You.
