That First Christmas

Good Morning & Merry Christmas my friends,

It would’ve been logical to expect God to tear open the Heavens and descend to Earth in majesty and power to celebrate the birth of His Son on that first Christmas night-but He didn’t..

Instead on that quiet night in Bethlehem, a virgin mother lay her newborn baby in a manger designed to feed cattle. The lowing cows, the sweet-smelling hay, and a dark sky illuminated by a magnificent star provided the setting. Humble shepherds joined the to witness the miracle and praise God. The most significant drama of the centuries was unfolding and through it salvation would ultimately take this child to the cross.

Truly God works in mysterious ways. The wheels of His mercy and justice move quietly, but they do move. The birth of Jesus Christ-the Son of God, our Savior-went unnoticed by the vast majority of the world that first Christmas night, but no event in human history was more significant.

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! May His birth and all it means not go unnoticed in your life today.

I pray that YOU have a TREMENDOUSLY BLESSED day. Blessings & much love…. D

Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
