What Child Is This?

How would you answer this Christmas question —

A myth?

Some kid conceived with Mary’s other boyfriend, hushed up with some holy dream story?

An ordinary man with a good moral message?

As a Christian, I believe this Child is God, who took on flesh and dwelt among us, who entered our world as helplessly as the rest of us do, who bore our sorrows and took the punishment for our sins, in order to redeem what went wrong in Eden, and to restore us to our Father who loves us.

If you celebrate Christmas, may it be merry.

Whether you do or don’t, joy, peace, and blessings to you in the new year.
