All those Christmas angels saw creation unfold. They actually looked on as God threw stars into space with the power of His Word and pulled man out of the dust. They witnessed Satan’s temptation of Eve, and they heard God’s punishment for Adam and Eve’s sin. No doubt they mourned as sin corrupted and destroyed God’s beautiful world, and maybe they even wondered, “God? Are they worth it?” But that first Christmas, the same angels broke out in praise, like they had at creation, because they saw God (again!) doing something amazing!
Christmas sometimes becomes dull to those of us who crave new insight or interesting point of contemplation. Occasionally, we see the Star in the East and become enamored with the Star instead of enthralled with the King. The truth is, the star is just a trinket -- the King is infinitely more intriguing. Right now is the perfect time to approach God and ask for Him set your eyes firmly on His Son this Christmas.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
