How great it was to celebrate with our community last Sunday night the birth of Jesus. I believe that no one who attended could have any question about who it was that was sung, danced and spoke about. Well done church! It is in the birth of Jesus that we can see an incredible example of the equality of all people before God.
Suppose Jesus had been born in a palace; the Wise Men might have gotten in, but the shepherds would have been turned away at the gates by guards. Yet at the manger, shepherds and kings could approach on equal footing.
On the church sign I put, “God’s gift is for all people”. His love sent down not a delegation, a commission, an unapproachable monarch, but a baby!
A baby, who grew up to die on a cross for my sins and yours so that all might become the children of God! How glorious and beautiful is the birth of Jesus Christ. Let us continue to celebrate His birth and the life that was given to us by Him through His life, death, and resurrection.
