Conspiracy of Love

Joy to the world! The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing”

I will never forget the Christmas after I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. It felt like suddenly the whole world was celebrating the joy of Jesus with me. Every store I shopped in became a worship service and every coffee shop, a place to meditate on the wonder of the Incarnation. The Mall itself transformed into good news for all for at least two months. Before that year, I knew the songs, I felt the Christmas cheer but I wasn’t aware of the power behind it. The awe behind it. Tradition is wonderful, personal revelation is life changing.

I remember feeling like my eyes had been opened to the divine conspiracy of love for all whether they knew it or not. It was a celebration with the entire world of God’s love and hope through Jesus.

” But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2: 9 -10, The Passion Translation

Three days til Christmas…
