The essence of the Christmas message can be read in the following account found in John 1:14a: "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.” John goes on to write, " We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son…”
The GLORY (manifested presence of God) was undeniable. Everywhere our Lord went, He left evidence of His presence: the blind received sight, demons were cast out, hearts were converted to righteousness and so on. How blessed are we that even TODAY that evidence still abounds!
If you are not living under an "open heaven” where that GLORY is being experienced, I would encourage you to invoke His presence through your perpetual praise and adoration of Him. The Wise Men did. After all, our Lord did say that He inhabits the praises of His people, didn’t He? Well, there you have it!
