Christmas Eve


2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16 | Luke 1:67-79


By Megan McKenna


Time is wildly out of control. We find ourselves back in David's reign. It is a rare time of respite and peace from warring and the king is settled in his palace. Hmmm ... time to think about building a house for God. But Nathan not so politely reminds him that it is God who had built and sustained his kingdom, kept him alive and given him everything. It is God who does the work and molds history and all things. And so it is God who will build a house and it will last forever. When will we ever realize that this is God's world and all belongs to God and we only live and breathe within the embrace of God? When will we realize that in Jesus and his community, his church, that we have become the house that God built?...
