Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

A Big Gift in a Small Package

You know that game where a small gift is wrapped in layer after layer of boxes and wrapping paper.  It’s passed around a circle and the size keeps shrinking as everyone unwraps some of it.  And then finally the last person person finally tears off the last layer.  This is his/her Christmas present.

In Jesus, it’s quite the opposite.  A very large gift (the Infinite God) was presented in a very small package (a tiny baby).  And as time went, He not only grew in size, but his glory (i.e. Godhood) was revealed more and more.  Finally, as His body was torn (and with it, the veil in the Temple that separated man from God), our Christmas present from God was complete:  a perfect Savior in whom we have forgiveness, new life, direct access to God, hope of heaven and God’s presence throughout, and much, much more.  The gift you can’t live without!

Thanks be to God for his indescribable Gift!  (2 Corinthians 9:15)
