I know it’s the day after Christmas, but this is too important not to pass on.
At Christmas we tell stories, in poem and in song, about a fantastic world of wonder, selfless generosity, peace and joy — all meant to conjure “the better angels of our nature,” as Lincoln put it.
Jesus told stories about the way Life really was, the way life should be, and the way life will be for those who will accept the gift of God — the God who demands perfection, and then gives it to us freely. He gives us Jesus.
He sent His only son, to be perfect for you, so that He could call you his own child, and so you would inherit your Father’s treasure.
Are you still on your belly, with your face pressed to the floor, eagerly peeking through the knothole? The treasure is yours for the asking. But you can’t get it without Jesus. That’s the rule.
