The Focus of Christmas

He’s not still a baby.

 

Here in this season where we remember the birth of Christ, it’s sometimes hard to remember the grown up Jesus that we serve. 

 

Maybe it’s easier to adore a tender baby than a mature Spirit

 

God is Spirit and those that worship Him must do so with their spiritual being (John 4:24). 

 

To worship this way means that we come before Him daily with a willingness to be influenced by Him. 

 

 

You see, as a newborn baby, Jesus:

 

Drew the angels out of hiding to sing His glory (Luke 2:8-14)

 

Pulled the Magi out of Asia to bow before Him (Matthew 2:1-2).

 

Impacted both Simeon and Anna out of waiting to erupt in His praise (Luke 2:21-38).

 

 

But, as the resurrected God, the Christ:

 

Sways our hearts out of the mundane to press toward Him (Ephesians 3:16-19).

 

Impacts our minds out of our worldly thinking to glimpse His brilliance (2 Corinthians 3:17-18).

 

Bends our wills out of a stiff-necked existence to seek His face (Jeremiah 31:3).

 

 

The Divine Seed is now growing within us. May we be transformed this season to act like it.
