We see a baby in a manger, wrapped in tattered clothes and sleeping in the hay. We see Mary and Joseph leaning over Him, remembering the words the angels said to them about the child and in awe of what is happening. We see the shepherds come to worship Him and tell Mary what they have seen. Mary holds these things in her heart. We see the bright star up above, showing the way for the Kings to come from the west. We see this with our eyes.
But this is more than just a child Love was born this day in Bethlehem. Love like this world had never seen. For God so loved this world that He sent His only Son. he sent His son, the Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, The Word incarnate. His Son, who had created all things because he was the word that went forth. His Son, full oif all humility and meekness, to preach a love that transcended what man knew. A love for God and a love for one another. A love that would go through anything to save one. A love that we can now share because He came that morning in a manger bed. The world would never be the same.
