I’m sorry I didn’t get a blog up last week but I appreciate all of you who regularly check out my website. I welcome any responses you might have as to the material I share each week. I will be posting again at the end of this week but I thought this reflection on the day Christ was born might be interesting to all of you. The following are my reflections.
Reflecting back on Bethlehem the city of His birth
Thoughts give way to light and hope He brought to human worth
As He began life’s awesome journey on that first Christmas day
His presence spread throughout the world to show us all the way.
The Glory of God shined forth into the night of pain
The gift of God is light and life to all who seek the gain
The Grace of God is sufficient for inclusion of the world
From the manger to the cross His freedom is unfurled.
The Savior came and gave Himself for all the human race
He taught and modeled service in the fullness of His grace
He walked the road with others, broke bread and kicked the dust
He talked and as the living Word encouraged faith and trust.
Two thousand years of history have passed and still it stands
The work of Christ has spread all throughout the lands
The world began to change when His glory pierced the night
And from his living active Word we walk in fellowship and light.
Have a Blessed Christmas Season 2013!
