Day 6: Perfectly Loved


Was JESUS born at

THE PERFECT hospital?

Did MARY have a slew of

THE PERFECT

nurses and doctors

caring for her?

Did JOSEPH go home to pick up

THE PERFECT

car seat

to bring

THE BABY home?

Oh no,

but the night

was

PERFECT.

Actually,

it was

BEYOND PERFECT

because

PERFECTION was lying in a manager

wearing RAGS.

THE RAGS that swaddled JESUS,

making HIM become one of us.

All because our

PERFECT GOD

LOVES

so

PERFECTLY

that

all HIS WAYS are PERFECT.

So what did GOD do?

HE did what HE said HE was going to do.

And there THE BABY was.

PERFECTLY swaddled under the stars

Oh what a PERFECT MOMENT

that lasts FOREVER.

And it started with

A BABY,

So this BABY would wear all our

RAGS OF IMPERFECTIONS

and call them HIS own,

so that only

HIS PERFECTION

remains behind

covering all those who

BELIEVE.

PERFECT means PERFECT~

"As GOOD as it is possible to be" (Wikipedia)

Read that again~

"As GOOD as it is possible to be".

PERFECT means PERFECT.

THE PERFECT BABY

bringing

PERFECTION into an IMPERFECT world

to

cover ALL of our

IMPERFECT

because of

HIS PERFECT LOVE

that

BIRTHED THE BABY~

"For GOD so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that HE [even] gave His [One and] only begotten SON, so that whoever believes and trusts in HIM [as SAVIOR] shall not perish, but have eternal life"

(John 3:16).

Because PERFECT means PERFECT

and it begins with

PERFECT FORGIVENESS

that means

PERFECT FORGIVENESS~

"as GOOD as it is possible to be"~

“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more" (Isaiah 43:25).

THE PERFECT BABY

WRAPPED PERFECTLY

in

tattered

RAGS

in a

NOT-SO-PERFECT smelly stable,

just so

that

HE could PERFECTLY WRAP

one & all

in a PERFECT FOREVER FUTURE!

Because

HIS PERFECT LOVE

covers

ALL of our IMPERFECTIONS.

And there is only

ONE PERFECT WAY~

JUST BELIEVE!

Oh that night was

so SIMPLY PERFECT,

just as GOD said it would be~

"You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger”

(Luke 2:12).

Because there HE was,

WRAPPED in our IMPERFECTIONS,

lying in a manger

with

HIS future PERFECTLY there.

For there were

HIS

"THORNS IN THE STRAW"

(listen to the song below)
