Something Happened

“There is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:11

Christians are divided in their thinking about Christmas. Some want to give up on it and hand it over to the department stores. Others want to salvage it and use it to say something important about the birth of Jesus to a weary secular world.

Years ago an old pioneer journeyed westward across the great plains until he came to an abrupt halt at the edge of the Grand Canyon. He gawked at the sight before him – a vast chasm 1 mile deep, 18 miles across, and stretching out of sight. He gasped, “Something must have happened here!”

At Christmas season, anyone who stops to look and listen must ask some questions about what the hustle and noise is all about. A thoughtful man or woman, seeing the lights, the decorations, the festivities and the religious services might conclude, “Something must have happened here!”

Of course something did happen. We need to tell the world about it. God has visited our planet. His son Jesus Christ came to reveal God and to die for our sin. (John 1:1-14)

It’s the best news ever. God became one us, that we might live forever with Him. Merry Christmas.
