Christmas Eve. A night of wonder and anticipation. Over 2,000 years ago a man and his young (very pregnant) bride traveled through the cold desert only to find no room at the Inn. They were full of anticipation for the baby that was about to make His entry. This was no ordinary baby. This was the prophesied King and He was about to make a very unique entrance.
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV)
My Christmas wish for you is this: That you would be overcome with anticipation for what Jesus wants to do in your life. That you would walk into each day with acknowledgement of this amazing gift that was humbly given to us over 2,000 years ago.
One of my favorite Christmas songs celebrates the coming of the King – I love this rendition and wanted to share it with you this Christmas.
May you be blessed this and full of anticipation this wonderful Christmas Eve!
