BETHLEHEM, TOWN OF SHEEP

 
 
Matthew 2:6

"And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel." ESV


Bethlehem was a small town in Judea where a great many shepherds tended and bred sheep. Each year at Passover, thousands of spotless lambs were taken to Jerusalem to be sold as lambs of sacrifice for the Passover. Was it not meant, then, that the Perfect, Spotless, Sacrificial Lamb of God would come from Bethlehem?


Heavenly Father, we have so many expectations about Your workings and we anticipate You to move when we pray. Help us to not look for You to act in ways we have designed in our own minds, but to be open and waiting for You to bring to pass that which You will by Your own ways and times, just like You did with Jesus, our risen Lamb. In His name we pray, Amen.
