For A Child Is Born

In a Fox News editorial, Rev Bill Shuler writes:

Christmas compels us to remember what matters most, in a world that too often forgets. The people and places central to the Christmas narrative have a message that is as relevant today as it was on the very first Christmas.

10 reminders at Christmas time:

1. Mary reminds us that even though you may feel vulnerable and shut out, God has not abandoned you.
2. The stable is a reminder that God’s blessings are often hidden in unexpected places.
3. The wise men remind us that God is often found where others fail to look.
4. A manger reminds us that God’s touch brings dignity to the ordinary.
5. A crowded inn reminds us that God only enters where he is invited.
6. The shepherds remind us that the good news of the Christ child came first to the lowly.
7. Herod reminds us that no enemy of the truth will triumph.
8. Joseph reminds us that each act of obedience is vital to the success of God’s plans.
9. The angel, Gabriel, reminds us that nothing is impossible with God.
10. Bethlehem reminds us that Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled with the birth of Jesus. (Micah 5:2)
