“And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
Christmas seems to be a very busy day, and I know I am not alone in that. It is full of presents, family, food, travel, and more food. I just got home from Pearl with my niece (which I am super excited about) and pulled out my bible and opened it to Luke chapter 2. You know. The whole reason for Christmas. Jesus. Somewhere in the craziness of the day I put it in the back of my mind the real celebration, and that makes me sad. So, I’ll just write out my heart for you.
Years ago today hope was born. Angels rejoiced. Shepherds overwhelmed with joy. I wish I could’ve been a flea on one of those sheep as the angel appeared to the shepherds with the news that the Messiah had been born. Or through the eyes of the camel that carried the wise men following a star. I wish I could have been a neighbor close the stable He was born in. These people waited for a very long time for this day. The day hope arrived. I wonder what it was like for them knowing a Savior was here. I do not know the answers I can only imagine it was an emotional day for all those fellas. Talk about a roller coaster.
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”
Tonight, I am so thankful for the gift that was given to us. He changed the world. I know He changed mine, and I will never be the same. The light came to the darkness, to the lowest, to the needy, and the broken. He is our Prince of Peace, and His name is Jesus.
Come let us adore Him..may we always adore Him
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
