This Christmas Eve devotional from Colossians is a reminder of the sheer wonder of the Christmas message. The same God who holds trillions of galaxies in his hand comes to us first as a microscopic zygote in the womb of an insignificant, unwed, teenage Jewish girl. Then, as a growing embryo inside that womb. Then, as a helpless newborn infant. Then, as a toddler, an adolescent, and a young carpenter. Ultimately, the one through whom all things were created would die on the cross for us. What does all of this mean? It means that nothing less than the birth, death and resurrection of the Son of God could save us. It means that God’s love for us is infinitely greater than all our sin. And it means that he’s not just God infinitely over us; he’s God infinitely close to us.
