Oh what a blessed morning this is - Glory to His name!
I can only imagine the joy that the Wise men encountered as they looked upon the sweet face of Jesus. Personally, I know that when I see a baby - I experience a feeling of joy from within my soul. I can only imagine how they felt as they gazed upon His face. To be chosen to have a part in God's plan is truly an honor, whatever the plan may be. To have a part in the very beginning of His plan for salvation for all human-kind is awesome!
This tiny baby boy was God's true gift to us. His birth brought about redemption, salvation and eternal life - all promised by God.
Jesus: the Son of our living God; the Prince of Peace; our personal invitation to enter into the kingdom of God.
Jesus: born of the virgin Mary; protected by Joseph, His earthly father.
Jesus: grew to be the master teacher, with the wisdom and knowledge of God to lead us to salvation.
Jesus: conquered all on the third day after death.
Jesus saves. Jesus lives. Jesus is! Glory to His name. Selah!
