Our God invites all men, through Simeon the Prophet, to "Behold! This Child!" To know, love and serve him, and to participate in his Light and Life.
It is remarkable to me that even in this late age of unbelief, where it is fashionable for the "heathen to rage against the LORD and his Christ," the power that this little baby has. For one day a year, across the whole western world (and much of Africa and the East as well) the world stops to mark the birth of the Incarnate God, and Eternal Word. Who, by his human birth, raises all humanity far above its miserable depths. He still has the power to close down Wall Street, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart as the picture above indicates. It was taken on Christmas night at the Wal-Mart in Parma, Ohio.
"O come let us adore him!"
"Behold! This Child!" named Jesus who delivers his people from their sins. There is nothing better than that. Amen
