It’s unexpected, it’s subversive, it’s astonishing. Our all-powerful, all-knowing God chooses to inaugurate His kingdom by coming down from heaven to dwell among us in the finiteness and frailty of human flesh. In the words of Dan Allender, “(Jesus’) arrival is an invasion, not a merry Christmas.” As Jesus “invades” the lives of familiar characters in the Christmas story, we see how unsettling and how revolutionary God-With-Us actually is. Even today, Jesus invites us to be transformed and mobilized by the unexpectedly good news of God-With-Us.
