As we enter into this Advent season, we are going to start a 3-part series called, “Christmas Letters.” If you have ever received a personal letter from someone you love, you will know the power of written words. Now in the days of e-mails, Facebook, Twitter and other communication avenues, we have lost the beauty of a simple letter.
When Christina and I were courting, we used to write letters to each other (she was in Champaign-Urbana and I was in Chicago). In fact after writing letters, we recorded our voices and then sent the tape (yes, I just dated myself) to one another.
Oh, those were the days!
I remember the time and effort it took for me to think through what I wanted to say to her. The motivation for the letters was to communicate my heart to her and to know what was in her heart.
In many ways, God has been communicating to us throughout history. He has been speaking through prophets, miracles, circumstances and now through the Bible.
God has sent His greatest letter through His Son, Jesus Christ (Jn 1:1-14).
This is going to be a great series. Don’t forget to invite a friend!
