  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

December 5, 2011 - Proclaim the Incarnation

By Patrick J. Donadio

During my entire ministry, I have been mesmerized by the mystery of the Incarnation (Philippians 2:5-9). It is difficult for me to comprehend that God became a man. When you dwell on this subject and talk about God, realize this: His throne is the universe and the earth, His footstool (Isaiah 66:1). Our God always was and always will be!

At the Christmas season we celebrate the birth of Christ. In Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago, our Savior was born into a world that He created. Before God came to earth, He never felt pain or hunger and never had to sleep or eat. However, when He lived among us, He chose to feel all of these human experiences. Why? Because He loves us. There could never be a cross and salvation if it were not for His miraculous birth in the manger.

If God was willing to go to the cross to bring salvation to mankind, the least we can do is use the talents He has given us to share this awesome gospel story with others. This is an urgent mandate for each of us this Christmas season and in 2012.
