Grasped by the Child

“It is impossible to conceive how different things would have turned out if that birth had not happened whenever, wherever, however it did … for millions of people who have lived since, the birth of Jesus made possible not just a new way of understanding life but a new way of living it. It is a truth that, for twenty centuries, there have been untold numbers of men and women who, in untold numbers of ways, have been so grasped by the child who was born, so caught up in the message he taught and the life he lived, that they have found themselves profoundly changed by their relationship with him.” -Frederick Buechner

  1. This Divine Plan of Jesus Christ being born as a baby is too amazing for any human being to comprehend. This is where our Christian Faith is necessary. We see the Holy Spirit at work everyday. It’s compared to the wind, we feel but only see the leaves move or the flag waving,not the wind. Amazing, awesome but we are not able to understand what we cannot see.
