Christmas is the day that we celebrate the birth of Jesus and of God incarnate. For most of us, this day is celebrated in a fog of normalcy. The birth of Jesus has become old news that we’ve celebrated before. The greatest truth—a beautiful, profound, mysterious, and wonderful truth—is shrouded in the boredom of the same old story, and we lose the vision of the uniqueness of Jesus’ birth. God wants us to open our heart to the beauty of this universe, and He wants us to ask Him to keep us awake to the vibrant beauty of this story.
