Luke 2:8-14 (ESV)
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 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. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
We should not treat Christ as if He is something common to man.
HE IS GOD!
This may be a radical Truth in this sick and wicked world. But it is the TRUTH!
Even the FATHER calls Him GOD and the angels in Heaven are commanded to worship Him. (Hebrews 1)
Let us not get it twisted!
This is not a holiday that you wish to celebrate with common worldly pleasures and self-indulgences. This is not a holiday that you wish to trivialize and make common with ornamentations and decorations, traditions and rituals, fairytales and false hopes.
This is not a common holiday.
This is a HOLY TIME that we desire to worship in daily!
This is a HOLY TIME of unusual praise and worship that we strive to be mindful of everyday.
It is always a HOLY TIME when we remember that God loved us so much that He came to be with us in the most intimate of ways and with the explicit understanding that He would be separated from His FATHER and His Heavenly Glory and suffer an horrific death so that we may know The Father through Him and know Him in a better way.
It is always a HOLY TIME when born again believers in Christ begin to worship Christ in Spirit and in TRUTH!
It is always A HOLY TIME whenever we receive a revelation and begin to express worshipful appreciation of the magnitude of what God did for us.
People lose their minds whenever a rock star or celebrity comes to town. Folks do some crazy and excessive things when their favorite musician, singer or politician visits them. People make some unusual arrangements and preparations when some big shot comes to town. All of these folks were born inherently wicked. Only our God is Holy!
There Is No one Bigger Than Our GOD.
AND THE GOD NEWS IS THAT OUR GOD IS WITH US!
“Glory to God in Heaven, and upon earth peace, Good News to the children of men.” (Luke 2:14)
