Everyone loves new, don’t they? Fresh, clean, unused, smelling good- just nearly perfect.
Christmas always feels full of new to me. From presents bought to old decorations I haven’t seen for a year. It’s fun to give and fun to receive something new!
Jesus feels new at Christmas too. A new view of God was delivered in a fresh newborn. A plan that had been kept secret was finally revealed. The gift of a New Covenant was offered to all people everywhere to become… something new!
Christmas is the remembrance of a most amazing event foretold for centuries! Messiah came. The ultimate New, God had promised for so long, finally arrived!
Now is the time to recognize what He did. Sing a new song to the LORD. He has done great things in a brand new way!
For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a son—for us! He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. His ruling authority will grow, and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness He brings. (Isaiah 9:6 MSG)
