The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.
When Jesus entered the world, after four hundred years of silence, the world heard from God. The people were not forgotten. God had spoken.
The angel of the Lord appeared to the most humble people of all—the shepherds. He went to the commoner, the worker, those who would come to Jesus with only tired bodies and empty hands. To those he brought great joy. To those he said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m bringing you good news. I have not forgotten you.”
God had spoken. A child had been born. For you. For me.
I hope you can meet Jesus Christ with fresh eyes this Christmas. I hope you will be open to having an encounter with Him. You’ll never be the same.
P.S. I’m taking a break from blogging this week to enjoy time with family and celebrate the greatest Christmas gift of all!
