Every Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A lowly infant born amidst a chaotic world to bring salvation to humanity. The life-changing miracle that is veiled behind the simplicity and monotony of a child’s birth is an amazing WOW for humanity. God became flesh on Christmas Eve (John 1:14). WOW! The omnipotent, omnipresence, and omniscient God (all powerful, all present, and all knowing) became Jesus Christ, the fully human and fully divine. Double WOW!
As I reflect on the cataclysmic miracle of the “I AM” existing as a human to display divine love for you and for me, I want to fall on my knees in holy worship.
“Fall on your knees
O hear the angels’ voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born”
(O Holy Night)
This truth is intensely theological, yet it is this mystery that is the real Christmas WOW and makes all our other WOW’s possible.
As you make last minute preparations for Christmas, look to experience your Christmas WOW. Do you find it in the innocent joy of children, the loving embrace of friends and family, is it the extended heart to the suffering under your nursing care, or is it the quietness of the night as you ponder the night divine?
Merry Christmas from NCFI!
