What an odd way for a thrice holy God to make His entrance into humanity.
I’m occasionally called by Trey’s mom to help him clean up his room.
This is usually when the carnage is such that it looks like power equipment will be needed to get in the bedroom door.
I can’t just instruct him how to clean up the mess.
Chastisement for the mess is appropriate, but will not clean up the mess.
I have to go and get in the middle of the mess with him.
Jesus came to save us from our sins and one day He will clean up all this mess.
He didn’t just send an instruction book, He came Himself.
He didn’t come to chastise, but to save.
He’s not afraid of you scandals or your mess.
He came for sinners.
He came for me.
He came for you.
Most of you who read here know all of this already.
Some of you have forgotten that there is no limit on the number of messes He is willing to clean up.
Some of you are acting like He never came at all…
Give yourself a Christmas present this morning and call Him again.
He will enter in to your mess with you.
God with us.
God for us.
Make your own application…
