On the 17th Day of Christmas – The Messiah is BORN.
Luke 2:11 “The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!”
Every time a baby is born a celebration is had and the news is on every social media account we can find. Birth announcements are sent out to close family and friends, and meals are prepared as a gift to the new or expanded family!
But there was one birth and one announcement that was greater and more well known and celebrated than any other child has been or will ever be.
This baby born, is our Savior and LORD, Jesus Christ.
I can just picture the shepherds as they get this news out in the fields. Spinning around and around, questioning the Angel, “But where, when, how….can we see Him…why have you told us?” It was the biggest and best birth announcement ever!
A sweet baby boy, lay in a manger, no crib for a bed.
“And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6b
This wonderful news! News that eventually traveled the Globe and filled the earth.
Our Messiah has been born.
Through His Life we are saved.
Thank you God for this baby, Emmanuel, God with Us!
