"The Call to Holiness" 1 John 2:1-2
Christmas is a miracle. Christmas is, "an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs." God chose to intervene in human affairs 2,000 years ago. God had promised many times that he would do just that. In fact, when the Magi came to Jerusalem they asked, "Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews?" The Magi were directed to the Scriptures. "But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel" (Micah 5:2).
The Magi were directed to words written 600 years before Jesus was born. The Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem. Through God's Word we are allowed to see behind the scenes as God "manifested his divine intervention in human affairs." Christmas is a miracle. Merry Christmas.
