Good Words for Today: December 15
How far is God willing to go to save you? He’s willing to leave the glories of heaven. He’s willing to be carried in a virgin’s womb. He’s willing to be born in a stable and wrapped in rags. He’s willing to be ignored by the world. He’s willing to become just like you. He’s willing to shed his blood for you. How far is God willing to go? You can’t even imagine the answer to that question. There is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still. At Christmastime, we do not celebrate the birth of some aloof God who stands afar off. No, we celebrate the birth of Immanuel—God with us. How far is God willing to go? Whatever pit you’re in, God is willing to enter that pit and meet you there. That’s what he did 2000 years ago.
