Morning by Morning, December 25 - Christmas Morning Glory
Good morning, Lord Jesus. It's Christmas morning and I celebrate the coming of Christ - the birthing of a Baby in a manger, the astonishing mystery of our mighty God humbling Himself in the likeness of human flesh and blood, and the amazing grace that the Author of Life would desire to come and live in the hearts of His children throughout the world and every generation. ...
" 'For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!' " (Luke 2:11-14, NKJ).
Lord Jesus, You were that Babe in the manger. You were the fulfillment of the messianic prophecy of the coming of Christ as God in the flesh, God with us, Immanuel: "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).
Come into the manger of my heart, a humble place prepared for You. Come be wrapped in the swaddling clothes of my worship, embracing Your Presence and declaring Your glory. Come hear the choirs of angels and the praises of Your people from every tribe and tongue and nation of the earth this morning thanking You - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - for the birth and life, the death and resurrection, the coming and the coming again of Christ the Lord. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
