Continuing from yesterday….
What makes Jesus different? Jesus was not just a prophet, he was not just a good teacher, and he was not just a special person God sent to the earth. Jesus is God, who wrapped Himself in flesh and came to earth as a man.
Regardless of whether or not we agree with the above statements, the problem that persists is that we discount who Jesus really is. God was one of us! God, in His unlimited power, His omnipotence, has the ability to become one of us and dwell with us. Emmanuel; God with us.
Application For Today
Ask yourself the question; "What would Jesus' experience of Christmas 2016 be like if He was in your shoes?" Would He be experiencing joy? Would He perhaps feel your loss of a loved one, the pain of family estrangement, the stress of the holidays, or the anxiety of a job loss? Write down what comes to your mind.
