I am excited about our upcoming series this Christmas, where we are going to be diving into the beauty of the Incarnation. This amazing moment in the history of our world where the God of the universe put on skin and was born as a helpless baby in a manager. The birth of Jesus Christ is a vital moment in the story of humanity and the reason for the Christmas season.
How often do we sit in this moment though? How often do we attempt to explain this unexplainable event?
Think for a moment about how inexplainable this moment is…… The God of the universe is born in human form, being both fully God & fully human, through an unplanned teenage pregnancy. To first time parents who are not wealthy or in positions of power.
This moment of incarnation where God and humanity become intertwined leading to the salvation of our world is beautifully unexplainable. I hope this Christmas we will get lost in the beauty and mystery of God putting on skin.
