It is once again that delightful season of the year when we turn our attention to the manger scene. Think about it with me.
An angel announced and proclaimed that birth.Joining the angel there was a multitude of heavenly hosts praising God for what had taken place.A star was used by God to guide those who had come to worship. Shepherds and wise men were present.
So, heavenly bodies, heavenly beings and human beings representing a variety of lifestyles—all were present. One inescapable conclusion is that the attention of heaven and earth was focused on the manger and the person of the Jesus Christ.
There is something else I find of great interest in this scene—it’s the star. On its long journey from the east to the west, it never took a bypass and it never stopped until it stood over the place where the child was born. The star led to Jesus Christ and to Him alone.
Pre-eminent in the whole story is the Lord Jesus Christ—not the wise men, not their gifts, not the star, not the shepherds and not even Joseph and Mary.
Why did He come? Why was He born? He came to die and thereby redeem all who would put their faith and trust in Him as personal savior.
Alexander built empires, Napoleon changed the nations of the world , Newton brought about an intellectual revolution and Edison created a new world for science, but there is only one who can change a human heart—the Lord Jesus Christ.
Come, trust Him and worship Him. There will never be a better time than now.
|"Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.
Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! The herald angels sing,
'Glory to the new-born King.'"
May God richly bless you...
And MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
