A really simple but profound truth has been hitting me really hard this Christmas: Jesus moved into our neighbourhood.
It's not that he was forced to do that: "you've got no option". No, he chose to move into our neighbourhood.
It's not that he came in some removed way: "well I"ll be there but I'm not going to get really involved in their lives". No, he threw himself right into everyday life ... even in the midst of people who were br0ken and far from perfect.
It spins me out that Jesus chose to do that ... and is such a strong invitation to live in the same way myself.
