God made flesh

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and things on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all thingss were created by him and for him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together.
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
Colossians 1:15-17, 19-20
As we pause to celebrate Jesus' birth, let us remember who He is: God made flesh. All the attributes of the infinite God resided in that tiny baby whom Mary held in her arms the first Christmas. We don't have to wonder what God is like- Jesus is the "image of the invisible God" and all of the holiness, love, grace, power, and glory of the creator of the universe is seen by him and through him.
Don't get so busy with all your to do's that you fail to remember "the reason for the season." God came down from heaven to reconcile all things to himself through the shed blood of Christ. May His glory be reflected in us as we worship Him not only this season but each day of our lives.
