December 24: “The Scandal of This Night”
The claim of the Gospel that God chose to become human and put on flesh is both wonderful and scandalous. Scandalous because the notion that the spiritual or divine would actually defile itself with the human experience is something that many religions simply cannot believe. And yet, here in this notion is the wonder of Christmas. That God DID become like us in every way, and share in our every experience in order to fully redeem us is what makes this claim of the Gospel so life altering. What would make the Divine do something so outrageous? Scriptures are clear that this was all done because of the supernatural love that God has toward humanity.
