It’s an audacious claim that verges on the edge of being unbelievable. The God of the cosmos loves us enough to become one of us as a baby. This baby is simultaneously fully divine and fully human. This baby who grows into a man shows us all we need to know about God. He willingly sacrifices himself to save, redeem and transform us. And he is present right now, and will come again in the future to finish what he began. Yes, it’s an audacious claim that verges on the edge of being unbelievable. But it becomes ‘realer than real’ when you gaze at that baby in the manger through eyes of faith.
