Tonight we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus. Son of God and Son of Man. Holiness and humanity lay in the arms of His creation and in the brokenness of the world He formed.

The night before Jesus birth was similar to our night tonight.  We ponder where we’ve come from (mistakes we’ve made, struggles we’ve walked through, joys and victories from the year passed) , we’re surrounded by the family that loves us and supports us and we hold them close.  We also dream and hope for the year to come, and wonder what it might hold.  We pray tonight that our faith this year will exceed the unknown, that our hope in a Savior would fill our hearts making no room for fear and doubt, and that the light of life that lives in us would shine bright enough to give the watching world around us hope and faith in the One who has loved us more than life, but given himself for us.

John 1:1-5, 14

The Word Became Flesh

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
