In the past, God spoke through the prophets to our ancestors in many times and many ways. In these final days, though, he spoke to us through a Son. God made his Son the heir of everything and created the world through him. The Son is the light of God’s glory and the imprint of God’s being. He maintains everything with his powerful message. After he carried out the cleansing of people from their sins, he sat down at the right side of the highest majesty. And the Son became so much greater than the other messengers, such as angels, that he received a more important title than theirs.
Food For Thought:
Clearly, an infinite God has a communication problem with finite humankind. Christians find the answer to that problem in Jesus Christ. The mystery of this magnificent universe finds resolution in the mystery of the birth in Bethlehem. Jesus Christ came and was clothed in human flesh to let us know who God is and what God is really like. In Jesus Christ we see that God is approachable and, to a degree, knowable by creatures like us. God can understand our condition because God has made us. We can know God because God has been revealed in Jesus Christ. -Reuben P. Job
God, it is only three days after Christmas. We are beginning to feel the season’s passing. But keep Christmas in our hearts. Help me maintain my gratitude and joy for the gift of your son who came to us and revealed to us who you truly are. Amen.
