I hate to take the Christmas tree down. It never seems like I’ve enjoyed it enough yet, nor fully explored the wonder that Christmas holds—a loving God becoming man and coming to rescue us from our sin and its consequences.
Michael Card is a singer who goes a long way in capturing the miracle of the Incarnation with words like these:
“Their (the prophets’) wildest dreams had simply not been wild enough.”
“Give up on your wondering. Fall down on your knees!”
And then the life of those who choose to follow Him:
“…who belong to eternity, stranded in time…”
“There is a wonder and wildness to life, and freedom for all who obey…”
As the new year begins, I take the first step into a new chapter of that wild life of freedom, drawing ever nearer to the time when my heavenly Bridegroom will come for me and the whole journey will be oh so worthwhile!
