He's coming!

It's Christmas week.  Actually the week we celebrate the birth of Christ.  The time of year isn't as important as the event.  On a day more than 2,000 years ago a baby was born unlike any other who has ever lived.  This baby was actually the one who created the worlds come to save this one.  No doubt it's an odd come into the creation you made to fix it from the inside out.  Some would say if he were God couldn't he just snap a finger and fix it all?  But a holy God had only one solution and that was to come, live, and die to provide life for a dying planet.  Now, more than 2,000 years later, this baby and the life he lived, is still the most important person to ever visit this planet.  He was God in flesh.  This week we anticipate his arrival.  We remember his birth.  Soon, very soon he's coming back as King.  All of history revolves around him, as it should.  This week, as you remember his first coming and anticipate his return, take some time and say "thank you" for the wonderful gift God gave in showing us his heart, his love, his mercy and his grace.  He is a great God, the only God, and he deserves our worship.  He has come and he's coming again.  How wonderful is this God we worship.
