It’s too cold for any planned birthday to have occurred at this time of year in this Hemisphere. Yes I know I was born 3 days ago. Yes I know God knew that I would be born then, but He actually planned Jesus birth:

Luke 1:30 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and give birth to a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. (NASB2020)

◦ Yes Jesus birth was planned in a month when it was much warmer than it is here today. Sorry that’s how it was, but I’ll not go into all of that. No matter when He was born, still He came unto His own and His own received Him not. But that opened the door for you and for me. So we celebrate His coming for without it we would have no hope. We celebrate the miracle of His birth. We celebrate that God loved us so much that He would send His own Son Begotten as a man of Him. The only time that that had ever happened, and it never will again. And He came willingly giving up His place by the Father to live with us in a place where He was not wanted.

◦ Oh how He loved you and me. We celebrate that love.

◦ The Angles came and caused the Shepherds to come and worship Him.

Today, He is still rejected by most, but we Celebrate His coming because this one conceived of His Father, and presented to us as He is the only begotten man child who is The Son of God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

We worship Him who is the prince of peace. The mighty God, the everlasting Father because He came to save us from our sin.

Merry Christmas
