See the coming of Christ in the midst of the Christmas season. See more than just the pretty lights, trees, and things we can get. But rather to see Christ and to see each other. Where is Christ coming? Can you see Him? Can you hear Him?
He calls daily to love others when they are unlovely, not ugly or repelling, but absent of walking in faith or walking of love. We live with a daily tripping and spinning of anger, worry, doubt, joyless – un- love- liness. Look behind the words, behind the eyes. Find the tiniest of lights that peek through the folds of the flesh. See the image of Christ there in between the bends and twists.
John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
Love the unlovely. Everyone of them a brother or sister. Human kind we are. Broken, messed up, and all of us in need of the coming of the Christ. Maybe you can be “the more than just decorations” to someone else’s Christmas season. Be light that shines through the darkness!
All is grace,
