Unmerited Favor arrives to Unmerited Opposition.

We often look at the humble, miraculous, arrival of Jesus as all warm and fuzzy – the cute manger scenes we see reinforce that perspective.  Yes, Heaven came to meet with Earth.  Grace arrives in the form of a wee bundle. Absolutely amazing and beautiful.

But He arrived to people in high places being racked with fear, deciding to do dark and evil things to try and stop this child before He could get going on His task!

Killing all the children under a certain age – was what happened – now that is dark, that is evil.

 

Why all the fuss?  Why such huge opposition?

He came to forgive . . . He came to usher in the “new” contract / covenant of Grace!

Don’t we all need and want that?  SURE!

The where does the opposition come from?

Hell!  Hell doesn’t want anyone set free!

Why are we surprised (when we take on Jesus offer, by opening the door He’s knocking on, inviting Him in to be Lord, Savior and King of our lives) that unmerited opposition starts to hover around and even attack our lives?

Hell doesn’t want anyone anytime anywhere to experience . . .

Grace – God’s unmerited favor, adoption, acceptance, forgiveness, arriving in . . . Jesus!

Jesus, Lord at thy birth!

God is amazing!!!
