00203 - Twas the night before Christmas
Updated: Mar 10
The phrase characterised by the children’s book written by Clement Clarke Moore, the book gets children excited for the visit of a fictional character - santa klaus.
Imagine the actual nights before Jesus birth ? the excitement of the star in the night sky for the three kings, then, the angel appearing to the shepherds, and how they must have felt. Luke 2:10-11 says ‘But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord’. (NIV).
The day Jesus was born, changed the whole world forever. A third of the planet has since accepted Jesus as saviour. Christmas is the best time to distract people away from the commercialism of Christmas and tell the real story of Jesus.
The reality of Christmas is Jesus was born to reconcile us all to God.
Father, I pray that I will have a deeper understanding of the life of your son Jesus this Christmas, Amen.
If you get a chance to share the birth of Jesus to any grandchildren today, please do, it will help them understand who He is, and what He did for us all.
