If Jesus had only taken on human form to identify with us, that would have been a tremendous sign of His care and concern. The fact that He went far beyond that to die for our sins and restore our relationship with the Creator shows His extravagant love. This is the ultimate Christmas gift.
1. Those who follow Christ are, in effect, a modern-day Christophany—an appearance of Christ to those around us. What are the implications of that reality for you?
2. If you have accepted the gift of eternal life Jesus purchased for you through His sacrifice, are you giving that gift to others? Who do you know that needs it today?
Challenge: Notice Jesus in someone today and tell them that you did.
