Every single day I stand in complete awe of God; on Christmas even more so. I look at this world that has had so many broken pieces ever since the third chapter of Genesis and wonder, why us? Why would this amazing, all powerful, all knowing Creator look at us and do anything but shake His head and walk away?
Really think about it. Could you love all these people in a world where darkness seems to lurk around every corner? The reality is that we will never be able to figure out why in the world He loves us! Why in the world He would ask His son, who was there at the dawn of creation, to step out of heaven and come to earth as a baby. Then to top it off, He told this Son that He would need to suffer and die for all of us and Jesus said, “Yes.”
When I think about all of that, I am overwhelmed and my heart wants to jump out of my chest. This truth, which seems too good to be true, is true! Christmas is our second chance. It’s our opportunity to have life as God intended, both today and eternally. As you celebrate this year, take just a few minutes to stand in awe of our unbelievable believable God.
Merry Christmas to each of you from all of us at Awesome Marriage!
