The Nativity Of Our Lord 2015
The world is in darkness. Man lives in chaos and tribulations. Evil, hate, inhumanity; the order of the day. We are in need of a Leader who will bring peace and order, a Superman who will bring light and cast out the darkness which mankind is engulfed in, a Saviour who will give power to those who believe in Him, a Helper through whom grace and truth originates, a Hero to overcome the villain called sin.
Behold He has come. The Word has became flesh, He has clothed Himself in the nature of that which was made through Him and He has come down to dwell among us, we mortal men. What incomprehensible humility! No, what incredible love!
And look at the gifts he brings! Joy; that we will find happiness in Him and despair no more. Peace; that He will lead us through the storms of life. Light; that He may illuminate the darkness within us and reflect His glory. Grace and Truth; that we will know Him, realize sin creates a barrier & seek His Father’s mercy. Life; that we will be mortal no more, for He will dwell in us and we in Him. Love; that hate and evil will be eradicated and we will stop seeking vain pleasures which lasts momentarily but find that everlasting happiness His love brings. And it does not end there, He brings blessings upon blessings.
In the beginning was Life. In the beginning was Love. And Love has been born. Love is here. Be sure to make room in your heart for Him.
Lord, as we celebrate the Nativity of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, may our hearts be mangers where He will be born and so gain the gifts He brings with Him. Amen.
