I read a very interesting quote last week from the Advent Sermons of St. Bernard. He says this:
"Be it done unto me, not preached to me, not shown to me but breathed into me."
Maybe the reason Jesus doesn't seem real to so many people, maybe even ourselves, is because we've settled for for preaching and showing, we haven't dove into the Spirit of God being "breathed into me" or "done unto me."
If you really want people to know that Christ loves them this Holiday Season (and beyond) don't just talk and show or point to other places to find Jesus. Be Christ to them. Love them. Sacrifice for them.
God wasn't content to use prophets to tell people He loved them, He became flesh and entered their lives. Will you do the same?
