Lowly shepherds heard the angels and wise men saw a star. God lead them to seek the Christ child and seek him they did. On this ninth day of December take time to read the four chapters of the account of our savior’s birth. Thank him for saving you. If you haven’t already found a Bible reading plan for next year, start looking for one. Many Bibles have reading plans in the back. I know we’re all about our phones but consider reading a physical Bible and keep the distraction of a dinging phone at bay.
Today, think about what it means for the son of God to take on the nature of humanity, to be born as a baby. To be fully God and fully man, to perform miracles, be tempted in all points and to give his life as a ransom for many. That is the beauty of this season, that is good news every day of the year. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
