God’s Anticipation

Your Domain Name It’s Christmas Eve and I’m imagining God’s anticipation 2000 years ago on that night that changed everything. This was the day.! Today God would become a Father to his very own Son. (Weird to think of God having a new experience. ) But even more than that, God was initiating his rescue plan. He loved his creation fiercely, especially humankind. But they had so many problems, all stemming from the same one. Sin. It began with the first couple and had only gotten worse. And now today–today!–was the day he would put his plan in motion to save them from themselves. How he hoped they’d recognize his Son for who he was.

Today I’ll reflect on God’s anticipation of this Advent, the coming of his Son, the best gift ever given. Jesus is  a lifeline, a friend, a brother. I pray you’ll accept him as your rescuer,  as God intended him to be. Unwrap the gift.

Merry Christmas!

Linda

  1. Recently, at Bible study, the leader mentioned that God was never addressed as “Father” before Jesus was born; and the second Person of the Trinity was never “God the Son” until after incarnation. Obvious, but I never thought of that before.
