This is one of the most ornate nativity sets I own. The golden stable, the shiny animals, the glass figurines all lend themselves to the story of a deity coming to earth. That’s our Lord, God in human flesh. There is something very special about His arrival in our world!

Colossians 2:6=10

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives[b] in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe,[c] and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have come to fullness in him, who is the head of every ruler and authority.


God, help me to celebrate that in Jesus I know nothing less than God. And Jesus sought to have a relationship with me. Praise God. Amen.
