FROM THE FATHER'S HEART My child, what a pity that I am still a babe in arms to so many. I was the prophesied babe born in the quiet, humble town of Bethlehem. Angels announced Me, and kings and shepherds revered me. Many still portray Me in a manger. I am no longer a baby, yet some refuse to make Me Lord in their hearts, to acknowledge that Bethlehem's babe is the Son of God who now sits at the right hand of the Father. Will you complete for them the rest of the story?
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE Long ago, You looked down and gave the world its mostprized possession. Bethlehem's babe, Jesus, born in a manger—what a humble, yet extraordinary beginning! Lord, my heart will be Your Bethlehem, where You can place Your throne. You're welcome in my home anytime.
