Like most of the beautiful things in this world, Christmas is bitter sweet. Jesus who never needed to feel alone, to feel weak, to experience hate, to be hurt or feel shame…came to experience all these things first hand. We spend so much energy trying to avoid these things, but Jesus came to fill up on them. He came to get his heart broken because God’s heart was already broken over us. So how is this a happy occasion? He did it for us, He did it for love, and one small part of this is that we know that He knows EXACTLY what it feels like to be us. Wherever you are in life, Jesus knows exactly what it feels like to be where you are. He’s been there too. And He’s come to bring you home.
