What a blessing and honour it is to do so. After all, He came to earth in the form of a man, as an infant, just like we people do.
But, He was different. He was the Son of God. Our Lord, who came to suffer and die for the sin of the world... of all who will believe upon Him.
As discussed in yesterday's LwL entry, Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem. And it was there, where Jesus was born.
Just as we read, in Luke 2:7-14, "And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Glory be to God... for sending His only begotten Son, to become the Saviour to all who will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas to you, my friend...
and to all your family and friends!
Until next time...
