Christmas morning isn't quite as much fun if you miss the small print on that toy "batteries not included." It looks great, but it's powerless to do what it's designed to do.
So are we. There's this person we want to be and the person we really are. The dark side of us wins too often; our selfishness, our negativity, our depression, our anger. And we end up hurting most the people we love most. Not because we want to, but because we're powerless to change. It's like the batteries to be the person we need to be just aren't included.
And that's why Christmas, and that's why Good Friday and Easter. One Bible writer spoke for all of us when he said, "What I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate I do...Who will rescue me? Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:15, 24). Jesus died to rescue you and me from the power and the penalty of our sin.
