This time over 2000 years ago Mary would be starting to have labor pains. She would have known that the time was getting close. She would have known that Christ was about to be born into the earth. We know from scripture that she knew He was going to be a special Child. But did she know that He was really God’s Gift to all of humanity?
This Christmas as we are opening up our socks, sweaters, earrings, ties and gadgets I pray that we all take a few moments to reflect on God’s Gift. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
Thank You, God for sending Jesus to the world. Thank You, Jesus for putting on the skin of humanity to save our souls.
