The Advent

An Apoetsbrain Original 8/12/21 ©


One quiet night 2000 plus years ago, heaven and earth collided in silence.

A baby was born.

Born to a virgin.

Born to heal the sick

Born to raise the dead

Born to advance human dignity

Born to transform human thought

Born to rescue the hopeless

Born a sacrifice

Born to die

Born to rise

Born as the Son of Man

Born the Son of God

Born to show us the way.

Merry Christmas!


Like John Ortberg put it,

“Jesus’ impact was greater a hundred years after his death than during his life; it was greater still after five hundred years; after a thousand years his legacy laid the foundation for much of Europe; after two thousand years he has more followers in more places than ever.”

Extract from the book Who is this man? : the Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus
