Christmas is all about miracles, about angels appearing in the heavens, guiding stars, mystic prophesies, and virgin birth. At Christmas, we gaze beyond the limitations of our earthly existence to the Power that supersedes mere natural law. Christmas reminds us that nothing is impossible with God; that any dream can materialize, any wish can come true, and that the unlikely becomes likely through faith in God.
But Christmas is all about mercy, too. It’s about individuals, nations, and even an entire lost world receiving their second chance. For God sent not his Son to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (Jn. 3:17)
Yes, Christmas is about God so loving us that He gave. It’s about people who walk in darkness seeing Great Light. It’s about the unworthy receiving a helping hand from above–about Ebenezer Scrooge, George Bailey, and Scarlet Ribbons.
Do you need help? Are you undeserving? Then you qualify for a genuine Christmas miracle. For at this time of year, more than any other, we’re reminded that God is looking down on us with wonder working love.
