Devotional: The First Christmas
Christian Christmas Devotion about Jesus birth
"...And while they were there, the time came for
her delivery, and she gave birth to her Son,
her Firstborn; and she wrapped Him in swaddling
clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there
was no room or place for them in the inn..." - Luke 2:6-7 (AMPC)
Jesus the king of kings and Lord of Lords
was not born in a mansion, nor was He born
to wealthy parents. He was born of lowly
means in a stable because there was no
room for Him in the inn.
He didn't come here to be treated like a king,
or someone of noble standing. He didn't come
here to live in a mansion or live a life of ease.
He came to save the lost—which is all mankind.
So, let us celebrate the Lord and thank Him for
the sacrifice He made in leaving His throne in
glory, to come as an ordinary person like you
and me, and then giving up His life for us.
Jesus was born on Christmas day
And for this very reason, we celebrate.
