The message of Christmas is that God has come to be with His creation. But where was God before that? The answer is found in the Gospel of John.
“In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was God. And the Word was with God. … And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”
Though entering time and space to spend a few years with man, God has always been in a relationship with God. This truth forms the basis of the Christian life… that at the core of everything it means to be His follower are the most precious experiences living beings can have: love relationships, with God at the center.
In order to demonstrate, He became one of us… even lived with us, and revealed what it looks like when God, who exists with God, also exists with man.
There are moments when I’ve been privileged to be a part of those encounters. No doubt, there’s nothing better. It’s enough to make a person feel merry.
