A time of music and laughter.
A time of bright lights and tinsel.
A time of friends and family.
A time of giving and sharing.
But more than that.
A time to celebrate the beginning of the greatest miracle the world has ever known.
A miracle that took just a little over 40 years to unfold, but that was planned all the way back at the dawn of time.
A miracle of eternal consequence to every single human being who ever was born and ever will be born.
That miracle began in a stable.
If you would like to take time this Christmas season to try to fully grasp the full implications of this miracle, you may enjoy The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent by John Piper. Through a series of 25 readings, you will be reminded of what Christmas and Christ are all about.
Each reading is brief—about five minutes or so. But the impact is lasting.
May true joy be yours this Christmas.
