O Little Town… Are You Asleep?

It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look. - 1 Peter 1:12

bestkevin_flickrHow often do we see anyone famous go anywhere without an entourage these days? There are even those who call the paparazzi ahead of time with their itinerary so that their pictures will be sure to splash the pages of the glossies the next morning.

And yet, the Greatest of all Time, of all Mankind... the Holy of Holies, the King of Kings... entered this world in utter obscurity. In a little town, among the stable animals, in the quiet of the night, while the town slept in ignorance. Yet the promise of so many lifetimes gave His first cries right in the midst of them.

In these crazy days of ours, in these long nights, are we guilty of sleeping our way through the Miracle of Miracles, right in our midst?

We are like the shepherd boy who saw that star. We know. We have the secret, the mystery is revealed to us. We have the Way, and we are going.

So are we stopping to wake up our neighbors on the way? Or are we resting in the busy-ness and cares of this world while the Savior waits to save the world?

I want to spotlight Him like the Paparazzi. I want to be the entourage. I want to herald his itinerary.

He is Here! He is Coming!

Let me be like the first Christmas bells of morning, pealing and beautiful, telling loudly of His great love.

The babe is here. He came for you.

Dear Lord, You came. Help us never to forget how important it is for us to tell others. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
