We hear it every year, see the nativity plays, add the star to the top of our Christmas trees. Most of us could probably recite Luke 2 in our sleep.
Mary and Joseph. The census. No room at the inn. Shepherds and angels. Jesus, wrapped in cloth and laid in the manger.
The Christmas story can become so familiar that it can lose its meaning to us. Especially surrounded by the busyness of the holidays, filled with long lists of to-dos, events, church services, family and traveling. Our focus shifts from the birth of the Lord to getting everything done on time.
No matter how you celebrate Christmas, try to find some time in the chaos to spend with Jesus. Alone, with your family or friends, at church, wherever you are, stop and take a moment to reflect on the best gift God could ever give us, the gift of His son, Jesus.
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors! – Luke 2:14 (HCSB)
WORDsearch wishes you a merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord!
