This is my gospel, for which I am suffering
even to the point of being chained like a criminal.
But God’s word is not chained.
Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect,
that they too may obtain the salvation
that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
II Timothy 2:8b-10
No matter where Jesus is preached, the Word of God goes beyond our human limitations and expectations. He is the Word become Flesh, the One who came to break the chains of injustice. This tiny baby we celebrate this year is the Son of Man who will bring us freedom from sin and peace with God.
