Messiah Babe

December 26, 2018

Weary travelers, Mary and Joseph have arrived

The time to deliver her babe has come

 

No room in the Bethlehem inn

 

No doctors, no nurses

Only local women with room in their hearts to help

 

Joseph paces outside, the townsmen encouraging him

"Maybe your child will be a son!"

He already knows

 

Groaning, sweating, straining

Mary gives birth

 

The women assemble a saltwater bath for the babe

Then Mary swaddles the baby, tightly

In cloths and love

 

"His name is Jesus," she declares

 

Jesus, wrapped now in cloths and placed in a manger

Later, wrapped in a linen cloth and laid in a tomb

 

The angels give the shepherds nearby a sign

"Find the swaddled baby lying in a manger"

 

 Swaddled babies don't usually sleep in mangers

This one is surely special

They hurry to find him

 

         Jesus

         Newborn King

         The Jewish Messiah

         The Son of God

         Personal Savior

         Payment for our sins

         God's only begotten son

         Amazing Gift

 

The shepherds succumb to their instincts

They bow down and worship him

They believe.

 

Do you?
