Dreams… Angels… Stars… the entirety of the nativity story is full of extraordinary events of God revealing his message to people. The Old Testament is also full of stories of revelation. What do we mean by revelation?
Something being disclosed. Receiving new information. In this case it is God disclosing something about him.
It is very easy for us to think “God hasn’t sent any angels to me. I’ve not had any special dreams” but it doesn’t have to be in those big events. It may be in a kind gesture, a beautiful sunrise, a word from the Bible.
The world is God’s revelation. We can see the extraordinary in the ordinary… if we choose to.
This Christmas are you going to focus on the presents, decorations, music and food or are you going to choose to discover more of what God wants to reveal about himself to you?
Have a great Christmas. Amen
