When you think on Christmas and in particular that very first night, what do YOU think of? Those experienced Christ's birth encountered a baby who was and is
Infinite and yet an infant.
Eternal and yet born of a woman.
Almighty, and yet nursing at a woman’s breast.
Supporting a universe, and yet needing to be carried in a mother’s arms.
Heir of all things, and yet the carpenter’s despised son.
~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon ~
May the wonder of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ and all that it implies and means, overwhelm your soul and spirit with awe, as it did for the shepherds and those who were eyewitnesses to it that very first night.
As we celebrate the virgin conception and Incarnation, may we continually be amazed and grateful at God's amazing grace toward all who believe. You see, it starts at the manger. From his Incarnation to His Crucifixion to His Resurrection and Exaltation ....it is all start with the baby in the manger...God with us, for us: Jesus Christ is Lord! May you and yours continue to reflect on His finished work that all started that first night and have a very blessed Christmas Day.
