If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

THE GREATEST BIRTH!

On the night of the Saviour’s birth, we are told, there were shepherds watching over their flocks when, “Lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord ... And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.” (Luke 2:9-14).


The angel’s instruction to those fear-stricken men was, “Put away your fears, and join with us in our celestial praise and joy, for man’s redeemer has come bringing God’s peace and goodwill for all people.” Here’s something for the human family to rejoice over - joy without the alloy of fear; a happening uniting heaven and earth, causing angels to sing.


What a down-to-earth Christ we worship! The angel said, “Thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.” And prophecy said, “They shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” And did not the apostle John declare: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth” Matthew 1:21, 23; John. 1:14.


The Father sent His son to be clothed with humanity, “born of a woman, born under the law” Galatians 4:4. Another apostle wrote of him: “For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest ... to make reconciliation for the sins of the people” Hebrews 2:17. Let sceptics scoff at Christ’s virgin birth, but we will catch the spirit of it and repeat that celestial song heard over the Bethlehem hills, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.”

Despite the essential severity of some of the Master’s rebukes, they were still given with a completely sympathetic approach consistent with his knowledge of the weakness of the vessels he was dealing with. “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you...
