What a marvelous mystery. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. God has come to help and save his people. That is the joy of our Savior’s incarnation. That is the center of this week’s celebration.
As we prepare for worship next weekend, we marvel at how God cares for his sons. He cared for his son, the nation of Israel—though they were rebellious. He cared for his Son, Jesus—though Herod raged against him. He even cares for his newly adopted sons—though we do not deserve it. God cared for us by sending his Son to deliver us from the corruption of sin and transform us into sons just like Jesus. That work of Christ gives us peace that only sons can have.
Here is this week’s “Together in the Word” for your personal and/or family devotional use.
God bless your celebration of your Savior’s birth this week. And may God continue to grow your faith, as you hear and study his Word this week!
Your Brother in Christ,
