It’s Christmas Eve. Have you ever wondered just how little note the world took of the birth of the Savior on that night in Bethlehem? When man first stepped on the moon the whole world was watching, yet when God Himself stepped out of heaven and visited this earth, very few people realized what had happened and many who were aware the the fulfillment of prophecy chose to ignore the truth in their midst.
Seven hundred years before His birth, the prophet Isaiah told us how the Savior would enter this world. Isaiah says, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call His name Immanuel.” Isaiah further describes the event like this, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Today, much of the world takes little note of the importance of Christmas. They have the knowledge of the birth of Christ in their heads but they don’t have the Savior living in their hearts. We have to turn head knowledge into trust and faith. We must place our lives in the hands of the only one who can forgive us of sin and make this life something that will glorify His name. God does not promise an easy life, but He promises to be in our lives every minute of every day. I am ever thankful that my life was changed by a baby boy. Merry Christmas to one and all.
