We are called to focus on and believe in the impossible when we believe in Christ and the events surrounding His first coming. The story here in Luke covers the facts, but between the lines we read the glorious news of God’s redemption, and the power of His love for us. It is His love that raises a humble girl, Mary, and an elderly woman, Elizabeth, into pivotal roles through which come both the Messiah and one in the spirit and power of Elijah. It is His love for us that sent Gabriel on this holy mission to tell a virgin that the Messiah is coming, and through her.

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast,” said the mad Queen of Hearts, from Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice in Wonderland. I would not like to emulate this character in other ways; after all, “Off with his head!” is really not a good coping mechanism for stress. But I do believe that we are called to focus on and believe in the impossible, when we believe in Christ and the events surrounding His first coming. And starting before breakfast certainly sets a trend for a faith-filled day!

The depth of God's Word is amazing—that one small passage of Scripture could convey so much about ourselves and about the Savior whose birth we prepare to celebrate in just seven days!

If you walk down a typical neighborhood street tonight, you’ll see artificial lights everywhere: streetlights, porch lights, headlights, solar lights, floodlights...and, of course, Christmas lights rambling up trees and railings like jungle vines. Thanks to Thomas Edison, making and possessing artificial light is easy and cheap. We can be careless with it, play with it....But have you ever been in complete darkness?

​God's love on display:​ He gave his only begotten Son to be our ransom. This is why we can sing, “Why lies he in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christian fear: for sinners here, The silent Word is pleading.”​ In all of Christ's life, we see what God is willing to give for those who are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.

​Matthew shows Jesus as the true Isaac, the true Solomon, and the true Israel, fulfilling not only prophecy, but also the law and Israel's calling to minister to the nations. He came humbly into the world, suffered for us, gave his life to bring life and light to the world. And we, his church, must follow our Head, shining his light in a broken world and sacrifically leading the nations in worship of the One true God.

How well do you know the prophecies of the Old Testament? Do you read them? Study them? Do you search for Christ in them? There are still many prophecies in the Bible I don’t fully understand, so I really appreciate when the New Testament writers help us with the meaning of Old Testament texts. Today, we’re considering the prophecy in Micah 5:2 that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. Initially, the main significance of Bethlehem is its insignificance, a small town of no great importance. But, then comes King David and the messianic promises that come through him.

Today's reading moves us from one of the prophets of old, Isaiah, unto these last days of Christ's appearing. In these verses, we mark the notable importance involved in the naming of a child. Sometimes, the name of a person in Scripture gives us a glimpse into the character or calling of that individual.

​​Jesus is ​the ​last in a long history of promised sons—the promised son of Abraham who​ would bring​ enduring blessing to the nations​​; the promised son of David who would build the true house of God​ ​and whose throne​ ​will endure forever.
