The day that this particular episode was published is December 25h... Christmas Day!
So Tony thought there would be no better topic to reflect on for this particular episode than the birth of Christ... and the meaning of the coming of God to our world... and to our lives.
Matthew 1:23 says that the baby who was born would be called Immanuel... which means "God with us".
John 1:14 says that God became flesh... and made his dwelling among us.
Isaiah 40:3 says that a highway has been prepared that allows God to travel directly into our mess.
Luke 2:12-14 says that because of this baby... wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger... that God would bring "peace" to men on earth.
The fact that God has placed himself within our reach... through the Incarnation... makes all the difference in the world.
It inspires hope for our lives!
It creates possibility!
It means that we are no longer alone!
It means that God... and all of his resources... are now available to us!
This means our hearts... our lives... our marriages... our relationships... our priorities... our futures... and even our relationship with sex... can be completely different than ever before!
So... Make Way For God... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
