The Christmas story stands at the center of the events we have been celebrating and anticipating for the last three weeks–the birth of a Savior for all the world. One God sent to destroy the evil in the world, and powerful enough to do it, born in a stable. And conceived to an unwed mother.
What would the happenings be like if the story were being told today? Many of us have experienced certain aspects of what Mary and Joseph experienced in those days. They are us. I love this re-telling:
Merry Christmas! I pray that as the holy day draws close you will take time to ponder in your heart that all God is asking us to do is to believe this amazing story. Have faith and then rest in your gift. “This is the work of God, that you believe Him whom He sent.” John 6:29
