Joy to the world…
Can you see Him there? Cold, swaddled, sleeping; skin is still raw from birth.
Darkness all around – only the animals in the barn have seen Him so far. Outside, Heaven’s star shines bright above. It will light the way for others.
His father and mother traveled far, still puzzled by these events. Yet their faith knows the promise before them. He is their son, but He is their King.
The world is unaware of the love just entered into its space – unaware of how much it will need Him, unaware of the sacrifice to come.
Well tonight, it’s holy and silent. It’s joy in the world, it’s the heart of Christmas first, and of many Christmases to come…
Where’s your heart this year?
