This healing Christ is the light that attracted the Kings and Shepherds at his birth. As he started teaching and healing, it was the same healing Christ that attracted the followers and crowds wherever he went. Today this same Christ is imbedded in each of us, touching our hearts and lives, awakening us to God’s powerful yet tender presence in our lives.
In the Bible, Isaiah promises, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) This child that God is giving us is the Christ, which Jesus embodied. Its so awesome to think that this Christ is ‘born unto’ each of us. Right now the Christ is working within each of us, bringing comfort, healing and joy: that’s worth celebrating this Christmas!
