Skin to Skin

The fact that we are within a few weeks of Christmas and the celebration of Christ’s birth makes these verses all the more meaningful:

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people” (Hebrews 2:14-17).

Fully human. Fully engaged. Fully committed, so that we could be fully free.

God puts on skin to save our skin. That’s Christmas.
