Don’t you just love the way God works? The Bible is filled with stories of Him using unremarkable people to do remarkable things. The city of Bethlehem was tiny compared to the great cities of Judah. Yet from this seemingly insignificant city not only came Israel’s king David, but is the birthplace of Messiah Jesus, Ruler of all things. And God wants to do great things through us as well. When we surrender to Him and walk according to His will, He will use us to accomplish tremendous and wonderful deeds!
The consequences of Adam’s sin was death. But from the beginning God in His abounding love, had a plan for our redemption. The culmination of that plan was the birth of our Lord and Savior, Messiah Jesus. And through His sacrificial death, Christ restored the once broken fellowship between us and our Father. From the manager to the Cross, Jesus lived a sinless life whose entire, loving purpose was to reconcile us back to God and to offer all who will believe, the gift of eternal life.
