"Pondering the Miracle of Christmas"

PonderChristmas
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1:14

     A great preacher once said, "The mystery of the humanity of Christ, that He sunk Himself into our flesh, is beyond all human understanding." This mystery is indeed too hard for us to grasp. What we do not understand about it, we simply accept by faith.
     Mary and Joseph were foretold that the Baby would be the Son of God, and they did not fully grasp the wonder of God's design. They just obediently did as they were commanded, and wondered about the things they were told. Mary kept every detail of the birth of her firstborn and pondered them in her heart.
     We certainly cannot grasp the total sum of Almighty God becoming man. We do not have to! We must just accept that our God became man and placed Himself in likeness of a sinful race to save them from their sins. Rejoice today with the angel of the Lord, "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."
     This Christmas season pause to ponder how marvelous the length to which Christ went to save you. Thank Him for the access you have to this salvation by simple saving faith.
     May God richly bless you. From the depths of my heart, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Study verses:  Habakkuk 10; Isaiah 53
