CHRISTMAS MAKES US LOOK AT THE BIRTH OF CHRIST
Luke 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, LYING IN A MANGER. What a joyous announcement it was that the Angels made to the shepherds that night. They would find Jesus, a newborn lying in a manger.
There was much more than just a baby wrapped in those swaddling clothes. He was the hope of all sinners. He was the fulfillment of the law and of the prophets.
In that manger was the center of all civilization. Immanuel...God with us. Jesus the Son of the Living God. A savior, the fulfillment of God's promises to mankind.
Wrapped in the clothes of a newborn, lying in a lowly manger was the hope and salvation of all who would accept Him and believe in Him.
No wonder the Angels rejoiced!
