Oh, the stories that come with Christmas! Tales of wild festivities, hilarious memories, and sentimental moments. At Christmas we also face stories we’d rather not; disappointing and painful memories are often whispering in the background.
One story we also hear tells of Christ’s coming to earth to save us. This is the greatest story, and it’s true. Even better –the author is still at work.
“You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.”
Not just the author of your life story, or mine, our God is the one who created life. He is the one who overcomes it’s limits that we may live with Him forever. With just a word He gives this life, and with another, He takes it away. He came up with life, and He brought into being, and He sustains life as we know it.
With just a word, He also changes life as we don’t know it, too.
We all like to think that we plot out our paths. We try to select the themes for our Christmases, our homes, and our lives. “It’s my story” we say, and we only get to write it once. What we overlook is this fact: as the author, He gets to edit.
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”
The greatest story, and the whole story, are written by the Hand of God.
Praise Him that for all the plot twists we wish weren’t there and all the corrections we try to make, His edits keep the story complete and perfect.
Behold, the Author whose edits to our contributions only make it better.
Behold, the Story with no plot holes, no errors, and no constraints.
Behold, the One who assures us that the story isn’t over and it won’t be.
