Good morning dear brothers and sisters in Christ! Welcome to Bible Verse Thursday this week of Christmas!
A Savior has been born to you,
He is Christ the Lord!
Earlier this week, I read a commentary that said “Try to imagine what our Lord gave up for you.” As I meditated on how Christ came into the world I was awed. He came as a baby – not a king or a rich man, as surely befit him. He set aside His Glory so that He could identify with us.
Sitting quietly with Him, I realized that the process He went through is reversed for us. As we identify with Him, Heaven’s Glory is opened up before us. He became poor so that we might become rich. “For you know the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor so that you, through His poverty, might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9.
As we wait attentively to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, we are clothed in the light of the knowledge of His Glory. May we be renewed in mind, cleansed in heart and invigorated in body.
