Scripture Quote: She gave birth to a son, her firstborn. She wrapped him in a blanket and laid him in a manger, because there was no room in the hostel. (Luke 2:7 MSG)
What an awesome plan God devised to bring our lost and broken world back to Himself. He used an innocent young girl to produce the Messiah, Jesus, who was born in a stable with the animals. There were so many extraordinary circumstances that surrounded the conception and the birth of Mary’s son. Mary must have wondered about each circumstance and its importance as she loved and anxiously protected the welfare of her miracle child. What an incredible woman Mary must have been to find such favor with God that He selected her to give birth to the world's Savior.
Jesus lived an exemplary life, teaching God’s peace to everyone, and commissioning a dozen or so simple men to spread His message of love. Eventually Jesus consented to die as a sacrifice for our sins. Those first shepherds verified what the angels told them by traveling to Bethlehem and seeing for themselves the child asleep in a manager. They had evidence that would satisfy others, so they became the first to spread the Good News - Today, though some will still reject Him, Jesus is still waiting to be born again in some new believer's heart.
Today’s meditation: Tell everyone the Savior's story!
Memory Verse: When the good news about the kingdom has been preached all over the world and told to all nations, the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 CEV)
