“Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star when it rose and have come to worship Him.” // Matthew 2:2
Christmas Day. It’s almost here. All the decorations, parties, and gift-wrapping leads up to this one day. December 25th. But 2,000 years ago, this holy day was something so much more. The day when the long-awaited promise of a Savior of God’s people came. The day the baby was born in a lowly manger. The day that would begin the most beautiful, radiacal, redemption plan known to mankind.
This baby in a manger was born for you and me. He was born in a world full of darkness, choas, and sin. This baby was born so that we may have peace and life for all eternity.
This baby was born so He could one day die for all of humanity. To take our sin, take our pain, take our wrath so we could have forgiveness and be set free. This is no ordinary baby. This is no ordinary day. This is Jesus. Born as a child. The One who always was, always is, and always will be. The day our redemption … our hope … came to life.
This Jesus is worthy of every single ounce of our worship. He left His throne, the comforts of heaven that surrounded Him from eternity past to eternity present. He chose to be born to redeem His people, to provide a way for life. This Jesus was born to die for us. This Jesus was born to be raised from the dead. This Jesus was born so that we may have everlasting life.
This Christmas, let the holiness of His birth wash over you. That majesety would become a baby and turn a manger into holy ground. That the King of Kings would humble Himself into the verunablity of a baby. To be raised by human parents, to go to the cross to pay a pentaly no one else in human history could have. A penalty He willing paid.
On this holy night of Jesus’ birth, peace had dawned. Grace became a reality. Hope became a promise fulfilled. A baby was born to die. A baby worthy of all our worship.
This Christmas, let’s worship Jesus. The baby in the manger, the Savior on the cross, the King seated on His throne, the One who is coming back for His church. This Christmas, and always, He is worthy. ❤
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones. May the peace, joy, and hope of the season fill you all week long.
Until Next Time,
Stephanie Jacqueline 💜
