When God wanted to reveal Himself in a deeper way He did it through the incarnation…God becoming flesh, He got physical. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. As Christians we celebrate that. That celebration has become known as Christmas. Christmas is all about God getting physical. The spiritual became physical so that we who are physical might understand the spiritual. In a similar way we need to let the spiritual realities in our lives as believers become physical so that others may see Jesus through us. Paul spoke of “Christ in you”. Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
Edgar Guest said, “I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I’d rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way.” It’s not enough to talk of Peace and Good Will. May these words and other spiritual realities become incarnate in our actions.
Mother Theresa put it this way… “Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which his compassion will look upon the world; yours are the feet with which he will go about doing good; yours are the hands with which He will bless others now.”
