And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus , for He will save His people from their sins.”Matthew 1:21 (NKJV)
Away in a feeding troth, two thousand years ago, there lay a baby whose little being was wrapped in swaddling strips of cloths. These swaddling cloths were a sign that his mother and father did not hold the riches of a king, but this did not stop Christ our Lord to bless them with this baby.
For this child was no regular child, He was the great I Am transformed into a human being to teach us who God is and what salvation is by dying a horrid death for us. His name was Jesus, the son of God.
While we celebrate Jesus’s birth, let us not forget that He is no longer a baby but a Savior. This isn’t a fairytale we tell our children, this is history that we as Christ-followers tell unto the world.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.Mark 16:15 (NKJV)
While covid-19 takes place, causing harm to the way we do Christmas, this is my reminder to you that even at a distance, we can celebrate the reason for the season. The wisemen couldn’t greet Jesus until years past, but they still celebrated at a distance until they could be in His awe-inspiring presence.
From the bottom of my heart, I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
