We live in challenging times where it is cold and dark for many people in the world. We hear about war, murder, despair, and other forms of evil not far from us. In the midst of all this, we celebrate that God chose to come into the world to spread light.
Jesus challenges us that it is through his weakness rather than through power and strength that he will reign supreme. He makes himself dependent on his parents and shows us that we need to be reliant on each other in order to survive.
For most people at Christmas, we are reminded of the loved ones around us. However, we must also remember to care for those left out in the cold and dark because they do not have warmth and light to share with others.
Therefore, let us spread the good news of the contradictory newborn King and to bring His light to all people in the bleak areas of this planet.
May you all have a Blessed Christmas!
Peace and all good!
