On the First Day of Christmas 2011-2012
[Note: I will be offering a brief devotion for each of the 12 Days of Christmas. I hope you find them meaningful.]
On this First Day of Christmas, let’s stop for a moment to reflect on the great truths that in Jesus Christ the Word became flesh and dwelled among us, full of grace and truth, and that in Christ the fullness of God was pleased to dwell.
Let us reflect further on the fact that we, the Church, are the Body of Christ in the world today; the life of the resurrected Christ dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. How do people see Jesus in us? How do people encounter the love and grace of Jesus in us?
Let us reflect on the related facts that God was in Christ and that Christ is in us and that we are Christ in the world!
May God’s blessings be with you on this First Day of Christmas!
