Today's reading: Luke 2:1-21
Merry Christmas, everyone!! Thank you for being part of Powered by 4 with me. I'm praying that each of you have a God-focused and God-filled day!
At a Christmas gathering a few years back, each person had to answer this question:
Besides Jesus, who would you choose to be in the Christmas story and why?
I was intrigued by the various ways people answered this question, and hearing the whys behind the choices caused me to think a bit deeper about the whole Christmas story—the what, when, why, how and the miracle itself. At the time, I chose one of the shepherds because of the encounter with the angels and then having the privilege of being the first to meet baby Jesus. This time around, though, I'm choosing one of the wise men because of how they were able to see and experience age-old prophecies come to perfect completion.
So what about you? Besides Jesus, who would you choose to be in the Christmas story and why? And once you've answered the question, send a thank you prayer to God for sending His only son to be your Savior. Tami
