Christmas Reflection

Several of my most recent posts have dealt with the issue of sin in the life of a believer, and the deleterious effects thereof:

  • Cleaning Fluid
  • Shipwrecked
  • Stop the Nonsense

Obviously, this is a topic that I care deeply about.  I consider the fight against sin and depravity in the culture to be of paramount importance.  And of course that fight begins with me in my own soul.  Thus, much of what I write is an admonition first and foremost, for me.

But I want to focus the remainder of this month on praise, wonder, and celebration of God’s gift to us in the form of His one and only Son, Jesus.  There is no greater gift.  And He is first and foremost, for everyone.

And thank you for reading.  I wish you the deepest joy found in the advent of the Christ child.


Christmas Reflection


Into the darkness

You brought

inexpressible pure Light


In the face of rampant evil

You sent a child, resplendent

all for us that fateful night


Your glory shines, undimmed

from Heaven down to earth

with sprinkled stars arrayed till Dawn’s alight


Amazing then, redemption began

Improbably, in humble nascent birth

to bring the Savior who would set things right
