The sad reality today is that Christmas finds churches full of people (including staff) who really are so close to the business of religion . .
This is the central theme and message of Christ and Christmas . . though God could have been justified in turning away from His earthly children who generation after generation have developed a “deaf ear” to the kingdom of heaven and in every imaginable way managed to wander off . . though a divine scolding in the largest of proportions was certainly warranted . . God sent His Son on a mission of mercy to insure that any and all of His children could find hope and help on the day they realize for the first time that they are not home alone . .
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” – Luke 19:10
This is David “JB” Miller noting that rescues that happen around our lives are one thing . . but when they happen IN our lives . . especially at the ultimate sacrifice of one life being given for another . . they can’t help but change the way we live.
Without exception, Christmas announces that we all have been offered rescue, release from certain death and forever separation from the love and presence of God.
. . in a love beyond comprehension.
