Jesus is the Messiah the prophets all foretold. He is God among us, in Hebrew Emmanuel. He is a child now, but we who live 2,000 years after His birth know what sort of man He became. We know He is the Word of God who became like one of us. He laughed and cried with His friends. He understood people’s needs. He healed the sick. He guided people to love and know His Father. He forgave sins and helped people to start their lives again rather than give in to despair. He suffered shocking pain – but His Passion and death led to new life and the Resurrection. Let us ask Him to bring us closer to Him and to each other. (Sinnopskornið: Christmas 2020)
