Worth Living

First Sunday after Christmas Isaiah 61:10-62:3, Psalm 147 or 147:13-21, Galatians 3:23-25; 4:4-7, John 1:1-18

Our Advent readings were stirring and strange and frightening. God is coming to earth! What could that mean for a people so weak and sinful and defeated? How could we bear it?

Yet God chose to come as a child. Judgement and justice begin to look very different when there is a baby in a crib. Surely he came to change the world and rescue people from their misery, but how this happens is not with pronouncements from flaming mountains.

No, he became flesh and dwelt among us.
