25 Thoughts on Christmas # 1

John 1:14 tells us “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us."  “Dwelt among us” … another version reads “made his dwelling among us” … another version reads “made his home among us” … another version reads “took up residence among us.”  Another version reads “He moved into the neighborhood.”  When Jesus was born, He wasn’t just wrapped in swaddling clothes, He was wrapped in flesh and blood and He "moved in to the neighborhood."  For Jesus to do that meant He willingly had to lay aside full access to all of His divine attributes and allow Himself to come face to face with all of the brokenness in our world … your brokenness and my brokenness, your sin and my sin, your hurt and my hurt, your shame and my shame.
