Christmas: Christ Born in A Manger

December 15, 2013


"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." - Isaiah 7:14

Mary, when foretold by the messenger of God that she will be conceived by the Holy Spirit, must have remembered this prophecy. Joseph, when this mystery was explained in his dream, must have recollected the verse to embrace and trust Mary's words. 

Jesus the Immanuel, meaning "God with us," became the reconciliation and mediator so that we can come closer and being with God. His birth in a manger that we celebrate in this holiday season was, from its very beginning, about humility and self-lowering. We should celebrate this coming Christmas remembering what the Son of God has done for us and his precious coming on earth to be with us. 

Christmas is the time when we should also remember and extend our hands toward those who do not know our Lord Jesus Christ, his birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension. 

"The good thing is that atheists tend to be very passionate people and want to believe in something," said William Lane Craig in his article, recently. 

Christmas, celebrated as major US holiday, can be a great conversation starter to our neighbors who are without faith. By living the lifestyle that witnesses the value of Jesus Christ our Savior, I wish that this season can lift up the souls of many and the Good News of Jesus born into the world as the light into the darkness can brighten the hearts of people around us.
