Who arrived in the manger that night?

I was catching up on my blog reading last week and found yet another gem on my friend Wendy's blog. It's a simple yet succinct statement on exactly who arrived in that manger all those years ago. A reminder of all I have in Jesus.

Colossians 1 tells us exactly who arrived in the manger that night...

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.

Merry Christmas
