Re:Verse reading–Luke 2:1-20 (day four)
From the glory of the throne room of heaven to the humble beginnings of a stable birth…in our high tech world, it is almost unfathomable to comprehend that the most important birth of all the ages took place in these conditions. How could a life that had such primitive surroundings impact the entire world? And not just for the present day, but for all the ages to follow. They did not even have Internet when He was born!
We can often lose sight of the true GLORY of heaven…we are distracted by the hype and dazzle of the accomplishments of man. We get excited when we can gain useless information by the gigabytes each second. God spoke a word and the universe came into being! In His love and mercy, Jesus Christ gave up His glory to redeem mankind.
May this passage remind you once again how much Christ gave up, because of His love for you!
