Christian author and theologian, J.I Packer claims that the real stumbling block to Christianity “. . . . lies not in the Good Friday message of the atonement, nor in the Easter message of the resurrection, but in the Christmas message of the incarnation.” Why? Because the natural mind let alone the spiritual mind can hardly fathom the great reality of God becoming man. And yet this one of the most amazing truths of Christianity. Packer went on to say, “God became man; the divine Son became a Jew; the Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, unable to do more than lie and stare and wriggle and make noises, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. And there was no illusion or deception in this: the babyhood of the Son of God was a reality. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as is this truth of the incarnation.”

Perhaps you are someone who wonders if this story is too fantastic to be real. Well, you are not alone in your struggles and doubts. Surprisingly, Mary also doubted when the angel Gabriel appeared to her to announce that she was going to give birth to the savior of the world (Luke 1:34). You see, it is ok to doubt but the real question is where that skepticism comes from? Does your doubt stem from a closed mind? Or are you like Mary whose doubt comes from an open mind that seeks answers to what you cannot fully understand. This year, why not come to church during this Advent season with an open mind to explore this king who is born in Bethlehem that the angels sing, “Oh come let us adore him.”  Service is on Sunday at 10:30 AM. Everyone is welcome!
