  • Albert Taylor on Daniel 2:43
    This is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. While we do not know the exact date of the birth of Jesus Christ, we do have December 25th set aside as a holiday. History records that more than 2000 years ago, a Man was born contrary to the laws of human life. Possessing an earthly mother and a Heavenly Father, Jesus came into the world for the purpose of saving us from our sins( Matthew 1:21) Without the pomp and fanfare of other famous kings, Jesus was born and placed in a manger. The Son of Man, as he often referred to Himself, healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out devils, fed the hungry, and went about the land of Galilee performing acts of kindness. Unlike the prophets of old, He was the Word. He was beaten, whipped and He died for the world by hanging on a rugged Cross. He never wrote a book, and yet all of the libraries of the world cannot contain the books written about Him. He never traveled 200 miles from the place where He was born, and yet, expanding seven continents--the gospel message has traveled all over the world. He never marshaled an army, and yet no other military leader could ever boast of making the Evil One drop his weapon, turn and run, without even firing a single shot. He walked with Enoch; He wrestled with Jacob, and He pleaded with Lot. Sometimes in the Old Testament, he was a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night. He was even known as the Angel of the Lord. He was the Seed of the Woman, the Passover Lamb, the High Priest, The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, Wonderful, Counselor, and even the Avenger of God's elect( I am sorry, Captain America is not the First Avenger). There are so many wonderful things about our Savior. I am so glad that He came into our world to save a sinner like me. I am so grateful that He gave His life. As the world celebrates this joyous season, I want to remind the world that God gave the Greatest Gift to all of us. Merry Christmas!
