the eve

What is Christmas? 

It is lights. Family together. Half watching the carols on its eve, half watching ‘the grinch’. Panic and anticipation. A folding of napkins. Signing one last card. A snap of a bonbon. But it’s more than that. Those are the surroundings. And Christmas is more that that. 

It is love. Love in its fullness. Nothing God does is without a full measure of love.

It is hope. A Saviour is born to save a world. So we have a future, we have an eternity.

It is joy. An ultimate victory begins. And mankind saw just a glimpse of the entirety of God’s plans.

Who has come? He has come… the chain-breaker, the embodiment of God’s heart too oversized to imagine, the justice, the personal. Jesus is born.
