A few months ago, our family was blessed with more grandchildren and great grandchildren. I tried to convince myself that this was no big deal. After all, babies are born all the time. The truth is, it is a big deal. Another life has come into the world and they are precious to behold aren’t they? They grow each day in remarkable ways. And they are totally dependent on us for their well-being.
That last part is something I’d like to focus on for a minute. I believe we can learn from these beautiful babies in that as we grow up and become adults we too should be totally dependent on the one who created us in the first place; GOD. Psalm 18:2 reads; The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
With the reminder of the Advent Season, it’s not too late for us to get our priorities in order. Making our relationship with Jesus, the number one priority is a most excellent place to start. We can begin our discussion around the table or around the Christmas tree with family and friends by saying, “It’s All About a Baby!” When Jesus was born he became the hope of the world, past, present and future. His life, death and resurrection was a living testimony as to how we can live our lives; develop servant hearts like Jesus; and give our lives in service to see the Kingdom of God grow around us.
On Saturday, December 14 at 6:00 pm, our church and choir will present a cantata titled, “Messiah, Heavens Glory.” Why not pray about today who you would like to invite? Perhaps, you could invite some-one to a Wednesday night dinner or other event and when they ask why you are inviting them you can say it’s “All About a Baby.” Then you can share with them the greatest story ever told and all about the part they can play in this creation story. Hallelujah! A baby is born… His name is Jesus The Christ!
God bless you and Merry Christmas.
YOU are a tremendous blessing to me!
