“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
Most people, whether a Christ-follower or not, know the “reason for the season”. Our now over-commercialized Christmas holiday is to celebrate the birth of Jesus, God’s only son, the only person to ever live a sinless life, and Savior of the world. That’s most-likely no news to you.
But I want to encourage you (& myself) to take a moment today to reflect on His birth and life. He was full of grace and truth – two things that sometimes seem contradictory in our world today. It is my prayer that we are full of both. We know and speak truth; the truth of His magnificence, power, and love. We are and show grace; the grace that we don’t deserve but He gave anyway.
