Even we who know God are very good at hiding from Him. We hide behind our good works or lofty ideals. We hide behind church pews or political systems. We hide behind the gifts we give to the poor, or the prayers we pray for the lost.
We are good at hiding. But thank God, He is better at finding us than we are at hiding from Him.
This is the story of Christmas. He reached down toward us, though we had hidden from Him and run from Him for so long. “God sent us salvation that blessed Christmas morn.”
