"And the angel said to them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'" ESV
The plan of salvation has been set in place from the beginning. It was known by Adam and Eve in the garden when God told them about Christ coming to crush the head of the serpent. All those who believed God looked forward to this day. The humble birth was revealed in the writings of the prophets, yet the world was still astonished at the lowly meager way the Messiah, the Christ entered the world. We cannot fully understand the astonishing wonder of it, but we can rejoice that He came. He did it for us.
Heavenly Father, how do we thank You enough for this day, when You became flesh and walked with us. Help us to give ourselves for Your pleasure. We cannot match this gift You gave to us. We can only give you all we are and all we have. In the name of Jesus, Son of God, Holy Father, Prince of Peace, Amen.
