“And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life”
Christmas is a celebration of the fact that “He who was the Son of God became the Son of man, that man … might become the son of God” (Irenaeus, Against Heresies). What a wonderful truth! For our sake He lived the perfect life that we never could have lived and died the death that we never could have escaped in order to bring us into the family. Glad tidings of great joy indeed!
This week take time to rest in the gift that Emmanuel’s life and death and resurrection on our behalf is to us all. And Merry Christmas!
