When Jesus was born, love broke into the human realm for the first time. A true love. A radical love. An “I will give my life for you” love that we had never known. A love we didn’t (and still don’t) deserve.
Somehow, Christmas seems to dredge up all the unChristmasness in the world. All the sadness. All the angst. All the heartache. Christmas season…
Jesus didn’t come to establish world peace.
This may come as a surprise, but Jesus never promised this. Any claim that he did is a misleading overreach that does no one any good.
