The Latin translation of the word ‘noel’ means ‘to give birth.’ So as we joyfully sing this Christmas classic of the first noel, we are commemorating the birth of Christ as a baby. In essence, the Messiah coming down to live among those whom He designed.
Sounds a bit complex … and to a degree, it is. To experience the presence of GOD in skin and arriving just as you and I did. The most Holy One humbles Himself just so that you and I can encounter Him walking, talking, breathing, laughing, crying, eating, feasting, teaching, healing …
on As you usher in this Advent season, give some time to meditate what those few people may have witnessed that night. The shepherds in the fields were common working folk, who were told of Christ’s birth. In faith, they hurried to see Him. Mary and Joseph, the newborn’s parents, weary from days of travel and seeking shelter for the moment. The owner to the stable and maybe his wife, could have been front row to this magnificent event not knowing the impact to all of humanity, including their very own souls.
Prepare your heart, Friend, as I will come alongside you in this Season of gratitude and thankfulness to celebrate and remember that marked moment in history when more than just a baby was born.
For unto us a Savior is given.
6For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this. Isaiah 9:6-7 ESV
