Are you ready for Christmas? Your first instinct may be to respond based on whether you’ve completed your shopping, wrapped the presents, finalized the menus, started cooking and cleaned the house. But there’s another way to respond that’s far more personal and powerful. That’s whether you really are ready to receive what God is giving you in Jesus – the fact that God willingly and fully came to us as one of us to us to fully share divine love, which unconditionally loves you just the way you are, loves you so much it is unwilling to leave you just the way you are, and invites you to experience the fullness of abundant and eternal life beginning right now. Of course, it may seem like a lot to ask to be ready for all of this. But, ultimately, it’s what Christmas is really all about.
