Phillips: one of us

Tuesday, April 7, 2015
    So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God.
    —1 Corinthians 4:1 (NIV)
    It is we who are Christians who hold the secret behind the façade [of Christmas], but it was never meant to be a secret; on the contrary, from the beginning it was meant to be ‘good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people’. By thought, by prayer, by every tried and untried means let us do all that we possibly can to make known that astonishing mystery, which is also an historical fact, that God became one of us that we might become like Him.
    ... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), God With Us: a Message for Christmas, London: Epworth Press, 1957, p. 13 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 4:1; Luke 2:10; Rom. 16:25-26; 1 Cor. 2:7-8; Eph. 3:2-6,9-10; Col. 1:25-27; 2:2-3; 1 Tim. 3:16; 1 John 3:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, assist me to proclaim Your mercy.
