Jesus is our peace. Whatever dividing walls we erect—racial, religious, relational, political, or cultural—Jesus wants us to live peacefully with one another. Let Jesus abolish the hostility.
No story is greater than that of the world becoming God’s tabernacle. It inspires me to draw close to God, who longs for us know Him and to receive His love. Perhaps we don’t feel the glory of God in this world as we should because no one is working to bring Him here.
God’s justice is like a mighty stream. To defy it is to block God’s almighty surge.
There is something fascinating and wonderful about rainbows. Their colors hold great beauty and promise.
In this story, we discover an explosion of excessive and sweet joy, the kind we all search for.

The incarnation tells me that God deeply loves humanity and is drawing us—you and me—into divine fellowship.
