The Christmas Code - December 8, 2022

CROP THE NATIVITY MORE, AND IN THE CENTER YOU WILL FIND A SAVIOR


"There is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

Luke 2:11


I love Rembrandt's portrayal of the nativity. One great beam of light falls upon the baby Jesus so that all the other participants are somewhat shrouded in shadow. He wanted nothing to take away from the significance of Christ.


Christmas is really about Christ. And, primarily, Christ alone. Not only is he the center of the nativity scene, He is the center of all of human history. His birth divided all of human history into “before” and “after” Christ. And, if you don't believe this, just think about it at the end of this month when you change your calendar. His birth points the way for all men and women to see that the road to our eternal home is through Him.


If the nativity were your own life, who or what would be in the center? He longs to be the center of your life this holiday season.


CODE WORD: TRANSPORT


If you could transport yourself back in time to that stable, would you see yourself standing somewhere off to the side, observing? Or would you find yourself on your knees, joining the angelic choir saying, “Glory to God in the highest!”?

Lord, my desire is to be a worshipper. And you alone are worthy of my worship.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
