18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! – Isaiah 30:18
God fulfills His longing to be gracious to us on the morning that Jesus is delivered in a barn by his step-father Joseph who cuts the umbilical cord connecting Jesus to Mary and lovingly holds Jesus in his arms, so Mary can see her beautiful baby boy. This infant, who is God in human form, is raised up, and from that moment on He shows God’s compassion to the world. Compassion shown through an invitation to shepherds to be the first invited guests to meet God in human form. Compassion that comes in the form of a life filled with promise – a life that gives our lives promise if we but take the time to wait for Jesus to come to us this Christmas.
