The Gift of Christmas - THE PROMISED ONE

God in his limitless mercy has sent His only begotten Son into time and place – then and now; into the world of sin and death – then and now; into grief and sorrow . . . terror and shame, then and now. God has mingled time and the fullness of eternal joy into the person of the human/divine Jesus. 

God has entered, enters and will always continue to enter fully into the time and place of us – all of us – God’s people. God brings salvation from all that destroys us. 

Today, wherever we live, TODAY is born our savior, who is the promised one.

This is the gift of Christmas.
