Jesus came to live among us as one of us. Not as a King demanding homage be paid to Him, but as a servant willing to die for those He created.
As a reward for His compassion and mercy He was crucified.
He didn’t just walk among the people. The Word says He “tabernacled” with us.
This means He fixed His tent, His tent of protection and love over each of us.
If you are born-again today you have the Living Christ as a tent pitched over you life. He IS the Tent.
John 1:14 (AMP) – “And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.”
There’s the true Christmas Story. Not saying that the Luke account isn’t truthful or unimportant, but those are the physical details.
This passage is the Mystery of it all. Word Incarnate. Only Begotten Son. The stuff that gets skipped over at morning devotionals because folks don’t feel reading the bible should be a brain buster.
These are the passages worthy of meditation. This is the stuff we need Holy Spirit intervention on. These are the Mysteries once revealed that become life changing.
I am hoping to help reveal some of the deeper meanings to Christmas as we quickly approach December 25th.
Maybe we will even dispel a few rumors and urban legends along the way which get in the way of the Glorious Truth (Reality).
Above all we must remember, it is really ALL about HIM!
