“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7
He was just an ordinary little boy, with ten fingers and toes. Blood surged through His veins as He cried out his first breath. On that day a child was born, yet he was more than an ordinary little boy. He is the promised Messiah – the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is God in the flesh. He was there at the beginning when the earth was created. He is here with us today as we journey through life. He waits for our arrival into His heavenly kingdom and will return someday to judge all people. Come quickly, Lord, Jesus!
Our dear, Savior, God, we thank you for that first Christmas, when you became our brother and lived among us. You made the sacrifice because of your love for your people. May the spirit of Christmas live in our hearts every day. May our love for you never die. May we look forward to meeting you face to face in heaven. Amen.
