"to us a Son is born..."


...Christmas 2009 is here...

as i remember the whole birth story of Jesus, i am torn by the story we share today...

"shop!shop!shop!"
"LIGHTS! CHRISTMAS TREES! CHOCOLATES!"
"ahh i must get those gifts on time!"

how glad i am that the purpose of christmas does not revolve around this...
how boring would it be!

how glad i am that christmas is about Christ.
...how humble i am to know that the King of the universe, the breather of creation, the all-powerful chose to take part of earth and live as one of us.
just so that on the night you are falling apart, the day your heart gets broken, the morning you feel like life has no purpose - he can relate.

just so he can understand.

born in a basket of straw, among the animals, and without a home...
to us a child is born - to us a King is born...

let this day be a warm reminder that Jesus our saviour made the choice to be among us...
"God with us", Emmanuel, son of Man...

it's okay, friend, everything will be alright...

merry christmas to all...
