It surely is close to Christmas!!! But Jesus will not be in a manger this year. There are still angels singing joyously that the Son of God is born…born 2,000 years in a real place in time, laid in a real manger, the Savior, Christ the Lord. Now, as we read His story in His book, we see how He grew, lived, taught the truth, showed us the Father in Himself, and then rose again to intercede for us in Heaven. It is His story. But because He took our sins and obstructions away on the cross, and
Made us part of His story.
Christmas, the birth of bright hope….of Hope Himself
Of the Holy One of Israel….The Origin and Author of God’s Creation
The True One…The Consolation of Israel and
A Light for Revelation to the Gentiles.
The King of Kings, The Lord of Lords
Emmanuel – God with us!
The One the shepherds rushed to see in the stable, who caused them to be astonished and to marvel at what they beheld, the one the Wise men from the East fell on their faces before and worshiped. The One who came to set us free and give us eternity with God, became the promise fulfilled.
Oh, indeed He is coming back to earth….to rule forever!
The only manger now is your heart, where you
Invite Him in.
“Joy to the world, the Lord has come – let earth receive her King!”
