Maybe that’s not the most Christmas-y verse ever.
Then again it might be.
God created us out of love.
When Adam and Eve sinned, He could have destroyed them.
Instead, He offered graced and reassurance that a deliverer would come.
When the world slid into unbridled sin, He could have destroyed us all.
Instead, He protected Noah and humanity got another chance.
He chose Abraham, and Jacob, and Moses, and David in spite their shortcomings.
Instead, He worked through them bringing His ultimate plan to fruition.
He has been active since the beginning.
Planning, drawing, working.
Then came that moment when He became one of us.
The story still draws us.
It even draws those who don’t yet know.
Now and forever, you are loved.
Christmas is proof.
