He Came…

Christmas Day      December 25

He didn’t come to us as a warrior…

though He came to do battle against the darkness of our lives.

He didn’t come to us as a conqueror…

though He came to vanquish our hearts.

He didn’t come to us as a contestant…

though He came to win our complete trust.

He didn’t come to us as a thief…

though He came to steal away our sin.

He didn’t come to us as a doctor…

though He came to heal us — body and soul.

He didn’t come to us as a wise man…

though He came to impart His unparalleled wisdom.

He didn’t come to us as a teacher…

though He came to teach us things of heaven and earth

He didn’t come to us as a philosopher…

though He came to tell us what is actually true.

He didn’t come to us as a prophet…

though He came to speak God’s words into our lives.

He didn’t come to us as a judge…

though He came to condemn our sins.

He didn’t come to us as a guide…

though He came to lead us to walk on the path of righteousness

He didn’t come as a priest…

though He came to bring unconditional pardon for our sins.

He didn’t come to us as an architect…

though He came to unfold the blueprint of our lives.

He didn’t come to us as an artist…

though He came to create something masterfully beautiful in our lives.

He didn’t come to us as a builder…

though He came to construct something magnificent in us.

He didn’t come to us as a lawyer…

though He came to be the advocate for our souls.

He didn’t come to us as anything we might have imagined… or in any way that would have made more logical sense…

But He came to us as a baby.

Helpless. Defenseless. Unthreatening. Dependent. Tender. Welcoming.

To draw us near to Him. To smile at Him. To want to hold Him. To look upon Him with hope, and love, and joy.

To see the wonder of life. Afresh and anew.

To look upon the Face of God…

And realise… the lengths to which He would go to bring us the fullest expression of His love…

baby Jesus
