THE CHRISTMAS STORY –
of God’s Love Coming To You
And God held in his hand
A small globe. Look he said,
The son looked. Far off,
As through water, he saw
A scorched land of fierce
The light burned
There; crusted buildings
Cast their shadows: a bright
Serpent, a river
Uncoiled itself, radiant
On a bare
Hill a bare tree saddened
The sky. Many people
Held out their thin arms
To it, as though waiting
For a vanished April
To return to its crossed
Boughs. The son watched
Them. Let me go there, he said.
Welsh poet and Anglican priest RS Thomas (1913–2000)
An Unexpected Christmas
And so Christ came to earth, as anticipated – unexpectedly.
Into the slime on our small globe.
God came to be with us, so we can be with Him for eternity. Our true ‘home’.
Thanks be to God for his (wonderful) indescribable gift ! 2 Corinthians 9:15
God’s only Son came from heaven as a sacrifice for our forgiveness.
This is real love. From the cradle to the cross.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in HIm shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Our little thin arms could never be enough.
“To save us all from Satan’s power when we were gone astray.”
Christmas celebrates the beginning of this journey of coming home to God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
With childlike faith – Let God Love You. Receive His gift of Christ.

You are valuable. You are worthy. You are deserving of being loved.
We should let God love us because our hearts won’t be at rest until we do.
And we so desperately need all the unconditional, transforming love that He can give. Every new morning.
Let God love you directly. Let God love you through friends and people who love and accept you.
Then, love God back. God’s Love changes everything.
It’s all about letting God love you, loving God and loving others.
How are you called this Christmas to Give and Receive the Hope of This Generous Love?
