Christ is in you, undeniably. It’s not only that He is around you, ahead of you, with you, upon you; but He is in you. His essence became yours when you first believed. This is the grace and miracle of it all, that His power and the fullness of His life in you veritably exudes from your being.
This is what Christmas means to me. Advent, that sacred season of waiting, is on the tip of the tongue. With it, I pray that grief and confusion would be contested with celebration, that joy would emerge at the end of the day to win whole battles for life – even life to the full.
