The baby Jesus is typically not seen in the manger until Christmas Eve, unless you’re talking about public Nativities. The past few years there seem to have been many stolen out of various nativities around the country. Why are people drawn to steal them? But more important, where is baby Jesus in your home, in your life, in your work? Do you keep him hidden away? Do you let him out to be seen in your life?
Surrender to the commercialism and secularism of Christmas or remain focused on the promise; “A son is given.” How will you remain focused on Him? Mary’s song helped her to remain focused on the promise fulfilled even though the timing wasn’t right for her, even though she didn’t fully understand.

Sacrifice and Grace Hebrews 9:24-28 Jesus made a sacrifice once and for all to enable all who follow him to receive eternal life.

On the 11th day at the eleventh hour in the 11th month we celebrate Armistice day; the day hostilities ended in the first World War. Today, 100 years have passed. The “War to End Wars” hasn’t…
Ruth, out of love, committed to Naomi not knowing what the future might hold. Even through hardship, loss, and despair, God used her commitment, here stewardship of her life, to fulfill God’s plan years in the future. God uses our sacrifice, commitment, and work of love even if we don’t see the results.
