Abundant. My Greek dictionary says – superabundant in quantity, superior in quality. It means lavish, or exceeding expectation.
Jesus came AS a baby, but that wasn’t the point. The baby stuff was a means to an end.
There was a purpose behind it.
The amazing thing … the purpose was for us.
To give us Life, and not just air in our lungs and food in our bellies.
Not even health and wealth.
No, life beyond our imagination, beyond our most audacious dreams, beyond our most daring hopes.
The Eternal Savior took on a finite mortal body in order to give us finite mortals an eternity.
Now that’s a Christmas gift.
