The greatest miracle of Christmas is not the birth of a baby named Jesus to a virgin. The greatest miracle of Christmas is that God came to earth to live among us. Christmas is about God coming to us. The Word made flesh and dwelling among us because He loves us and wants a relationship with us. The Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, called Jesus, “Immanuel!” meaning “God with us!”
Then Jesus promised the Holy Spirit, to be with us and live in us after he ascended into heaven. Today, the Holy Spirit, is still here today. God with us! And for those who have placed their faith in Jesus as their Savior, God in us! Think about it! If you have placed your faith in Jesus as your Savior, the very One who impregnated Mary AND raised Jesus from the dead lives in you! Paul said it this way; “Christ in you, the hope of Glory!” The Holy Spirit is Christ in you!
Wherever you are, whatever you are walking though God is with you, He is with you today. God doesn’t lift us out of our problems, but He places Himself right in the middle of the chaos with us.
Even in the middle of the mess that has been 2020, as we find ourselves neck-deep in chaos and uncertainty, maybe, this is where the real meaning of Christmas comes alive in us and means more than it ever has.
