Two thousand years ago, God came to our world in the person of his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the true Word of God, who brought light into the darkness - the truth about God, salvation for all who believe in Him, and access to the power of God to overcome every obstacle we face. At this time of the year we celebrate his birth with great joy. We sing with enthusiasm “Joy to the world, the Lord is come!”
By God’s grace we have a permanent record of the dealings of God with and on behalf of people, in the Bible. Although the Bible is not the Word of God in the same manner as Jesus Christ is, we nevertheless experience God speaking to us through Scripture. Someone said ”Jesus Christ comes to me from the pages of the Bible.”
As we celebrate Jesus Christ during this season, He is ready to meet each one of us where we are. May we recognise Him and may our love for Him grow.
