Merry Christmas! I hope that this day fills you with warmth and wonder as we celebrate a miracle: Emmanuel, God with us.
God with us. It's almost impossible to grasp the depth of this seemingly simple statement. God -- the all-powerful and all-knowing creator of the universe, came to earth to be with us -- the perfectly and wonderfully messed up people that we are.
It's too good to be true! It's absurdly beautiful! God came to earth to ransom mankind, and He is still with us today. No greater gift has ever been given.
Wishing the merriest of Christmases from my family to yours! (And as we count down to 2016 over the next six days, join me daily as I share a few favorite posts from the past year's blog archives. Thank you for reading, as always!)
