In the midst of all the shopping, partying and decorations, it's worthwhile to reflect on the reason for the season. Of course Jesus is the reason for the season. But in reality we (you and me) are the real reason for the season - we are the recipients of God's greatest gift, as Randy Alcorn shares this week...

The Miracle Of The Incarnation
by Randy Alcorn
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us. Titus 3:4-5
 
The miracle of the cross was made possible by the miracle of the incarnation. The angels must have been stunned to see the second member of the triune God become a human being.
 
The baby born in that Bethlehem barn was God, and He was born to die. His death delivers us from our fear of death. His suffering on the cross atoned for our sins, allowing Him to understand and help us.
 
And incredibly, the incarnation is permanent. Christ rose in a glorified human body that He’ll have forever. It’s not that Jesus suddenly stopped being a man after the ascension. No, the second member of the triune God will be a human being who reigns eternally on the New Earth.
 
“He was created by a mother whom he created.
He cried in the manger in wordless infancy, he the Word, without whom
all human eloquence is mute.” — Augustine
 
This blog is excerpted from Randy’s new devotional, Face to Face with Jesus: Seeing Him as He Really Is, which includes 200 entries focused on the person and character of Jesus.
