Christ's incarnation on that first Christmas evening demonstrated that God was willing to step into the darkness of all that was not right and speak a message of hope, a message of peace, a message that would, in time, demonstrate that all is well even though all does not seem so.

How about to witness Jesus say, "Lazarus, come forth" and (as your jaw drops), watch Lazarus arise after four days in a tomb? Or even yet, to be there when Jesus ascended to heaven?
