“Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews? We have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” Matthew 2:2
Diana woke up filled with joy and wonder as she remembered; this is the day we celebrate our Savior’s birth. She was in awe of the fact that He chose to be born – knowing the torturous death that would come. Just a few days earlier she and her five year old grandson, Joey had watched ‘The Chronicles of Narnia”. Diana had been brought to tears at the stunning illustration of the sacrificial death of our Messiah, Jesus Christ!
Joey, had turned to her with tears in his eyes and said; “Grammy, Jesus had to die for us too huh? Just like Aslan had to die for Edmund”. Diana hugged her young grandson, and said, yes; Jesus did that for us, so we could be with Him, because He loves us so much.” She silently asked God for wisdom and thanked Him for that glimpse of tenderness in her young grandson’s heart. With sorrow and trembling, she thanked Her Father for His precious gift of His son, Jesus. Reflect on exactly what God did for you with this miraculous birth and ask Him for wisdom and diligence as you thank God for the salvation that only the birth and death of Jesus Christ could bring! Just as the wise men did; seek Him with every thing you have!
