It seems this year that I have the distinct pleasure of being the last post before Christmas day. That could, of course, change, but as of right now that is the case! In this post, I will roundup the best Christmas posts, not posted by me, in the past month. I know it’s not Friday, but it doesn’t really have to be, right? Right??
3. Silence, and Then… (by Christopher)
Christ’s birth was preceded by 400 years of silence from God. But then the silence was broken by the cry of John the Baptist when he was born. He was filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb and his purpose was to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
2. Just One Look? (by Christopher)
The King of Kings was right there in front of the inn-keeper who turned them away, about to be born. His parents needed a place to stay, but the owner turned them away. How often have we rejected Christ, His Word, or something He has done when it is right in front of us? How often has He been right there but we’ve told Him that there’s no room for Him?
1. A Just Man – Part 2 (by Christopher)
In Matthew 1, we see Joseph described by God as a just man. How cool is that? When Mary told Joseph that she was pregnant, imagine the things that ran through his mind! Yet, through it all, he kept a level head. Even though he was going to “put her away”, he did not publicly humiliate her. After an angel told him that what she had conceived was of the Holy Spirit, he stayed committed to his fiancé. This is a great post by Christopher describing the character of Joseph!
That’s it for this post, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
