the birth of our Savior



Our perspective of Christmas ought to change the way we live.  Most people were not born into privilege.  In fact the majority of the people born on this planet were born in to poverty.  That means that most people reading this post today were blessed to be born with more than the majority of others.

That doesn’t mean we are better than other people.  That means we must recognize our need and the need to serve others.  Take the perspective that Martin Luther, quoted above, offered about our Savior.

The Christmas birth of the prince of peace and king of kings was not the entrance of a king but of a peasant.  In retrospect that should give us hope.

When we are at our lowest, Jesus is for us.  When we hurt the most, we know that our Lord has been there.  When we are afraid and worry, we can rest in the truth that our God is with us.

Christmas truth is that the Jesus of Christmas really is the God who is with us every day.  Take some time to this through that truth.  Take some time to share it with others.

And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
