A Journey to Christmas

Luke 2:1-14

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

The birth of a baby changes things.  Whether it is your first or you have had several children, when that baby is born, your life is never the same.  There are diapers to buy, feedings, sleep disruption, visitors, challenges, joys, good times and bad.  As your children grow, we realize that their presence also changes the world and others lives in ways we could never imagine or predict.

I imagine it was similar with the birth of Jesus, yet the difference He made was so much larger in scope.  The difference that one life made would impact the world in ways we, even today, cannot fully understand.  Born that day, laid in a manger in the town of David was a baby who is the Messiah, Christ the Lord!

I pray that this Christmas morning will be one that is full of celebration, fun and joy.  Remember why we are celebrating and remember that the birth of Jesus in not just meant for one day, but is to make a difference each and every day of our lives.

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Peace!

Prayer:

Lord, may the birth of Jesus continue to transform and change my heart and through me the world around me.  Help me not to live in fear but joyful expectation and anticipation of Your coming into the world.  Amen.
