You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” ~Luke 1:31-33
The birth of Christ is one of the greatest events history has ever tasted,
The time had come for the Light of the world to be illuminated.
The time for God’s awaited promise to be manifested,
The time for the truth to be attested.
The time for love to be demonstrated,
The time for the Father’s heart to be validated.
The time for Christ to come in the likeness of sinful man,
The time for the birth of a King whose kingdom will never end.
How quickly I can fall in stride with the world’s value,
How quickly I can forget the what, the why, and the who.
As I search for the joy and love of the season,
May I not forget that Jesus is the source and the reason.
As I scurry to do my shopping and holiday partying,
May I not forget to make room for worship and adoring.
As I drink cups of eggnog and holiday cheer,
May I not forget that He drank the cup of the Father’s will.
As I carefully hang ornaments on our Christmas tree,
May I not forget that He came to hang on Calvary’s tree.
As I lay gifts under the tree wrapped in bags and paper,
May I not forget the gift, wrapped in cloth and laid in a manger.
On Christmas morning as we untie and open our presents,
May I not forget to give thanks for Emmanuel’s presence.
Thank you, Lord for sending your one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
