“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
—Luke 2:11 ESV


Today we celebrate an event that took place over two thousand years ago: God put on flesh and was born in the city of Bethlehem, in a humble manger.

Today we also celebrate a present reality: God is with us.

Yesterday, today and forever Jesus remains Immanuel: God with you and me.

It’s true: we’re far from perfect.

But the Imperfect Nativity reminds us that our messy lives are the perfect home for Christ.

Today, hold on to this truth: Jesus is with you.

Here is a simple prayer to carry with you today:

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