We all have some amazing things in our lives that we take for granted. It might be the comfort of a home we call our own. Maybe it's family. Maybe it's friends. Maybe it's living in a country where we have freedoms that are not seen in other nations. We know that if we think about it with any degree of depth there would probably be a host of things that we overlook every single day that are really quite amazing.
This is even more true when it comes to our relationship with God. As we enter into the Christmas season we don't need a preacher to tell us that we often got distracted from the true meaning of the Incarnation -- this miracle of miracles when eternal God forever took on flesh and became human. Christmas carols can easily become so familiar that we forget the profound meaning behind the familiar words.
Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
These are more than words though, they speak of a reality that is beyond comprehension.
