The Second Day of Christmas

John 1:18

No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in the closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. (John 1:18)

Have you ever marvelled at the beauty of a sunset, or been stopped in your tracks at night by a clear, starlit sky? Have you ever had a hunch that there might be a greater being who created this wonderful universe we live in? If so, have you ever wondered how this greater being could be known?

Many people will tell you to forget it, but Jesus came to tell you that your hunch is right.

We can’t see God with our eyes. We can’t find him with a telescope. In fact, we can’t search him out at all. But on that first Christmas Day when that baby was born, it was God himself who had come into our world. He had come to make himself known; to show us how wonderful he is and how precious to him we are.

It turns out that he’s our Creator and that he made us to live in relationship with him. It turns out that knowing him is the way to find true, deep, never-ending joy.
