Day 26 - The King Comes
“And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." --Luke 2:7
I have to confess, I did not know how this study was going to end when I began it. I laid out a plan for how each day should go, but I did not anticipate feeling the way I feel writing today’s lesson. Over the past twenty five days we’ve looked intently at the person of Jesus Christ, how He lived His life and what He taught, and I feel overwhelmed to finally be staring at the words in Luke that simply tell us that He was born.
God, in a desire to be near to us, entered our sinful world to save us. He took desperate measures to ensure our heavenly salvation and to bring His kingdom authority to the world. What an amazing God we serve who accomplishes all these things. How remarkable that He reveals these things to we who are the weak and lowly of the world. How marvelous that He offers us the opportunity to tell others about this great story. Merry Christmas
