Jesus’ birth, although surrounded by unusual events, was a normal birth. His conception, however, was one of a kind!
To keep picturing the infant Jesus in a manger is cute, but He’s not there anymore. Now He wants to live inside of you!
Jesus’ baby steps led to the cross. Now He calls us to take steps that follow Him.
What a birth!
Has come to earth!
Night shift shepherds heard The sky full Of wonderful words And what they saw Filled them with awe. Bright night light And baby talk From the sky Caused those sheep keepers To be joyful leapers. It's common knowledge That Jesus was born And placed in a manger, But if He's not been born And living inside of you, You're a stranger To the kingdom of God.
Tiny statues to honor “baby Jesus” make us forget that He’s now grown up, resurrected, and present and active in the world today as King of Kings.
Would you rather people think of you as a baby or as an adult? Maybe Jesus feels the same way. Jesus has been babied annually for many centuries. Isn’t time to realize that Mary’s baby boy isn’t a child any more?
