Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
It’s easy to miss the Savior in all the lights, presents, office parties and general busy-ness of the Christmas season, but to be fair, almost everyone missed Him at the first Christmas, too. Back then, it had been 400 years since God had any real interaction with His people, and their world had gotten a lot darker during that time. While the Jews of that day were just trying to get by, to survive, the Savior snuck in the back door.
If we’re honest, most of us probably go about our days as if God was distant, silent, and kind of uninterested in the mundane details of our lives. But think of this: if Christmas is true, it means that God is not silent.
And if the God who created you and me is speaking to us through His Son, we probably should pay close attention to what His Son has to say.
