Depending on your age, you may remember a whacked-out song several years ago titled, “What If God Was One of Us?” It was far from biblical and, as usual, Christians spent most of their time hammering the song (and thus selling more copies) rather than using a song that everyone was listening to already as a springboard into discussing truth.
Anyway, God did become “one of us” (though not like us)on that first CHRISTmas morning…
As Wesley penned,
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see;
hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel
From the Hagers to you, may the true and valid and timeless message of CHRISTmas resonate in and through you today and everyday…until the whole world knows!
