God creator of everything, eternal word, clothed in transcendent glory has shown who is he in a baby born of Mary, vulnerable, wrapped in cloth within a manger. God really is there and he shows us who he is in Jesus. The Incarnation remains the world's greatest interruption which makes possible the life, death and resurrection of the Lord of Life who forever remains with us, Immanuel. There really is a good God and he is here for us, whatever we face.
Over these next couple of days I am saying a prayer written by a British friend Jamie Wallace.
Lord Jesus, we welcome you into our world, into human life, into our hearts.
Thank you for coming to teach and heal, to befriend and lead, and to die for our salvation.
Thank you for being here now as you promised you would be, and forever. Amen.
May you have a wonderful celebrations this Christmas, with a good year full of God's grace stretching ahead.
