|Check The Details|
“The devil is in the details”, one newscaster announced this week. He meant that what may sound like good news might contain a catch or two once we know the whole story.
For example, it sounded good that UK families could meet over Xmas, but now that we’ve heard or read the details, some feel robbed that it did not go far enough. It’s like the human condition - despite the apparent good news of human progress throughout history, the details of our history make bad reading.
The Christian story is that God is in the details of our salvation. It begins with how God planned to send his Son, Jesus, to save us, and continues with the details of how he did send him and of how his Son sacrificed himself for all of us. Some call it the Christmas story, but it’s more than that. It’s a story for every season and for everyone. The child Jesus grew up to become the Saviour of the world.
Those details make good reading.
Jesus is good news.
