Merry Christmas from the Coopers

Erik Cooper —  December 24, 2010 — 1 Comment

No matter what your circumstances are saying to you today, our prayer is that each of you experience the presence of Jesus Christ this Christmas.

Immanuel. God with us.

The Creator who isn’t far off.  Who didn’t just record the human experience to playback later (with some eggnog and gingerbread) on some supernatural DVR.

God incarnate. Who became one of us.

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” – John 1:14 MSG

All your pain.  All your imperfection.  All your ineffective self-righteousness.  Your futile attempts to be good enough on your own.

Jesus embodied our humanity so He could become the embodiment of our redemption.  That’s why this baby named Jesus is some seriously good news.

God is truly with us.

Merry Christmas!

  1. Merry Christmas! I have been thinking about that passage in
    John 1 for the past couple of days. Great verse for Christmas Day!
    Love the Christmas card!
