In the fullness of time God hurled the greatest gift toward humanity in the birth of Jesus Christ. His birth assures us of God’s presence with us and His care for us. There is no greater power than in Jesus, no greater potential than with Jesus, and no greater comfort than to know Jesus.

Week 3: Let'er Go!

God has lavished His grace on us. That’s what we celebrate at Christmas. And it is this grace that motivates us. Yet, the word “grace” is often difficult to grasp and live out. Frequently we rely on our own efforts and intentions, well-meaning as they are, instead of living out His grace through us. Why is that? Why is it that too often our neighbor-loving efforts lack a joy-filled heart that exalts Jesus?

Luke just happened to have extra birthday balloons in his car. He noticed a house with a “Happy Birthday” sign in the window while driving by. What happened next he caught on camera and, while watching it, I became uncomfortable for him! He went on to be invited in while giving the birthday girl the balloon surprise he had in his car. He explained Grace Bomb and even invited these strangers to church. While not all Grace Bombs will begin with awkwardly knocking on a stranger's door, most will require pushing through the cultural norms and the comfort zones in which we live.

In the fullness of time, God sent His Son to be born of a virgin. Heaven came crashing into earth that first Christmas day and the world has been swept up in the explosion ever since. That loving blast has gained momentum and changes lives in the very best of ways. Jesus is the only weapon of mass construction in the world today, having unique power to heal, restore and put broken things back together again. When impacted by such love, we actire enabled to carry on the mission of bringing light to dark places, bringing more heaven to earth, and getting people looking up.
