The Christmas Gift That Keeps On Giving

Almost 14 billion years ago God knew what God would give the world as a Christmas present. God’s creative genius began fashioning the universe. (God was the first to make Christmas presents and fill them with love.) In his infinite loving plan, the incarnation of Christ became one seamless process of God’s self-giving and communication in love with creation. In this grandiose plan the completion of creation will be the fullness of God: “When, finally, all has been subjected to the Son, he will then subject himself to the One who made all things subject to him, so that God may be all in all” (1 Cor. 15:28). At the end of the ages Jesus will give back the gift now complete and whole, “the fullness of Christ [that is] the creative diversity of all that exists held together by the Spirit of luminous love.” (The Emergent Christ, Ilia Delio)
