THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

JAKE STIMPSON | JESUS BIRTH | NATIVITY | CHRISTMAS | HARDSHIP | STRUGGLE | PEACE | UNCOMFORTABLE 

What happened right after Jesus was born? Did everything become easy and nice for Mary and Joseph? Well, for starters, they found themselves on the run, living as refugees. Though Jesus came to bring peace on the earth, not much about Him was particularly easy or comfortable to receive, either at His birth or any other time in His life. There is a level of discomfort, violence, and hardship that accompanies Him. The challenge for us, as it has been since His coming, is to receive Him as He is and not just as we want Him to be, to let Him do what He wants in our lives, even if it’s uncomfortable or painful.
