“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
—Romans 5:8 NIV


Let’s establish a crucial fact: God made the first move.

He didn’t wait for us to get our act together.

He didn’t wait for us to be perfect.

The King of kings came to us, was born in a dirty manger and made his home among imperfect people like you and me.

That is what we celebrate on Christmas: Immanuel, God with us in our perfect mess.

Here’s a simple prayer to carry with you today:

Breathe in: Jesus,
Breathe out: Make your home in me.
