CHRISTMAS MEMORY PDF Print

There’s much about this season that goes beyond the corporeal, the material, the tangible.  Different sights, sounds or even smells drag us into moments we thought were long-lost forever.  Some of these winks in time are precious and we don’t want to see them disappear.  Others are aberrations – an invasion of our peace – and it would be fine with us if we never, ever thought of them again.

Being human though, they come upon us at their own pace.  All of this led me once again to this particular thought . . . 

What of Mary?

Mary at the cross?

In that moment of excruciating pain – both physical and emotional – what memories must have come gushing forth!

All the encounters, all the divine signs, all that happened just as God said it would must have led her to believe that this day would never come.  Imagine the Christmas ghosts she encountered?

But!  God’s Word is sure, and will always be accomplished!

It’s not a ghost of the past that she encounters days later – but her son . . . God the Son.  Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a woman to lead humanity to the Father!

Now that’s a Christmas memory!

“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”  Luke 1:31–33  ESV
