Christmas Journey

December 18, 2011

How far is it from Nazareth to Bethlehem? If you’re in Pennsylvania, it’s about 9 miles and takes about 10 minutes by car. But if you’re in Nazareth of Galilee, and you’re traveling along with your pregnant wife, as Joseph was, it’s about 80 miles to Bethlehem. That journey probably took Joseph and Mary about a week, and they didn’t stay in a nice hotel when they got there. All Joseph could find was a stall in a stable, and that’s where Mary delivered “her firstborn Son” (Luke 2:7).

But the journey for the infant Jesus was much farther than 80 miles. He left His place in heaven at God’s right hand, came to earth, and accepted our humanity. Eventually, He was stretched out on a cross to die, and He was buried in a borrowed tomb. But the journey was not over. He conquered death, left the tomb, walked again among men, and ascended to heaven. Even that is not the journey’s end. Someday He will return as King of kings and Lord of lords.

As you take a Christmas journey this month, reflect on the journey Jesus made for us. He came from heaven to earth to die for us, making salvation available through His death on the cross and His glorious resurrection.

Praise God for that first Christmas journey!

When God stepped out of heaven above
And came down to this earth,
He clothed Himself in human flesh—
A Child of lowly birth. —D. De Haan

Jesus came to earth for us so we could go to heaven with Him.

Read: Luke 2:1-7; Galatians 4:4-5

When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son. —Galatians 4:4
Bible in a year:
Obadiah; Revelation 9

Mine, too, Meg. I listen to it during the Christmas season because its so sweet and touching. I love to post it and hope people listen as I do.

I just listened and watched Joel Olsteen and now I’m watching Dr. Stanley. I am looking at he clock and trying to figure out if I may make it to church today....I will see. If I only felt a little better, there would be no problem for me.

That is so lovely, JC.
The beginning of the video gives some of the names of Christ.
This poster is one of my favorites
And, as we celebrate the birth of this Man, the "I AM",
I wish you a joyous Christmas:
