Everyone loves new, don’t they? Fresh, clean, unused, smelling good- nearly perfect. Christmas always feels full of new to me, from presents purchased to old decorations I haven’t seen for a year. It’s fun to give and exciting to receive!
Jesus even feels new at Christmas. God made fresh in a precious tiny newborn. A prophesied mystery kept secret for centuries, finally revealed. The gift of salvation to the world. A New Covenant offered by the Creator to all people everywhere… an opportunity to become something brand new!
Christmas is the remembrance of the most amazing event anticipated -The Kingdom of God on earth. Now is the time to recognize what He did-great things in a brand new way!
“Sing a new song to the LORD; He has done wonderful things! By His own power and holy strength He has won the victory.” Psalm 98:1 Good News Translation
“For a child has been born—for us! The gift of a son—for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness He brings.” Isaiah 9:6 The Message
