What does the Christ Child mean to me?
“Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. ‘Don’t be afraid!’ he said. ‘I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior- yes, the Messiah, the Lord- has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!’ ”
We find in the complete Christmas story what this baby boy sent from Heaven means to the Shepherds and the Wise Men. These visitors traveled great distances and relied on faith to get them to this baby. We even see what this baby meant to King Herrod, how intimidated the king was. We know through scripture what this Christ Child meant to humanity then and what He means to humanity now. He is the Savior of the world! My question for us to ponder this week however is a bit more personal. What does the Christ Child mean to me? As we continue into this season of Advent looking toward Christmas may we draw closer to the manger than ever before. This week let us live out the blessings of the birth of Jesus in every moment of our lives.
Have a blessed week, Brian, Mary, Brylee, Holland Funderburk
