Last Sunday morning, our choir performed a beautiful cantata entitled, Celebrate the Gift. It was such a joy to sing the wonderful words of celebration for Jesus' birth, along with the lovely accompanying melody of the song.
What a blessing it is to be part of those who belong to this incredible King. Born in a stable, the lowliest of places, as a tiny, helpless baby, the Son of God brought Himself down to man in the most remarkable way. Who could ever have imagined such a thing?! When you really stop to think about what God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit did in that moment of incarnation, you realize it is beyond comprehension.
Being beyond human comprehension is no surprise. Has God not said in Isaiah 55:8-9: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts."
And so, as we consider this great, incomprehensible gift of a loving, all-knowing God, let us rejoice in thanksgiving and praise and celebrate this most wonderful day. Blessed be the name of the Lord - and all praise to King Jesus!
