A friend of mine asked her students to make a list of questions they would like to ask Mary. “What was Jesus’ first word?” “Did he ever get sick?” “Did Jesus ever misbehave?” All legitimate questions, and the fact that we can ask them raises a greater one: why did God go so far? Why did He become a human being? A chief reason – he wants you to know that he gets you.
The Bible says in the book of Hebrews He understands how you feel and has faced what you face. Jesus has been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. Because of Bethlehem, you can boldly go to him.
