(John 1:12-14 NIV) Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God...

Unwrapping the Gift

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
- Hark the Herald Angels Sing, vs. 2, Charles Wesley

"Jesus is the reason for the season" is only part of the story of Christmas.  What we see represented in art and story of Jesus' birth in a manger is only the wrapping on a much greater gift of  God's love, mercy and grace...Jesus' death and resurrection.

The hymnist, Charles Wesley, has captured this great truth in his Christmas hymn, "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".  Jesus' human body is only the "veil" of God himself, the wrapping. Jesus becomes "God with us, Emmanuel." The reason for his wrapping himself in Jesus is to shed his blood on a cross for us to be close to God, again, and to have all our sins washed away in His sight.  We can now be friends with God because he hung his gift of forgiveness on the tree of Calvary (the cross) wrapped in Jesus who gave his life for us who were so far away.

Col. 1:19-22 (NLT)
For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, [20] and by him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of his blood on the cross. [21] This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, [22] yet now he has brought you back as his friends. He has done this through his death on the cross in his own human body. As a result, he has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.

Like the gifts under our Christmas trees, they remain only wrapped boxes with our names on the labels until the gifts are unwrapped and received.  Then the gifts our truly ours.  Will you receive the gift God wrapped in Jesus and hung on the true tree of Christmas, the Cross.  If you do, you will know the true "reason for the season."

(John 1:12-14 NIV)
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- [13] children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. [14] The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Merry Christmas, enjoy your gift.
