In this, more than any other season we are reminded of the gift that has been given to us. The gift from God whose rescue mission transported him from the throne of glory to the heart of humanity. A gift I won’t exchange, refund or return.
But the story out of Luke 2 doesn’t start there. It actually began in the beginning of time. It began long before Christ was born in the stable. It began when God created the heavens and earth.
God created light and darkness. He created the sky, the land, the oceans, seed bearing plants and he placed the stars and called them by name. He created the birds, fish and livestock. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image…” (Genesis 1:26). Us being the key word there. God was speaking to himself, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Jesus was there when the heavens and earth were being created. He was there with God in the very beginning.Add a comment
