A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.”
So this child not only was He one young in years but He didn't fit in with this idea of one weak in knowledge, did He? At the age of twelve He was there in discussion with these educated and learned doctors of the law among the Jews. And they, it says, were astonished and amazed at His understanding and at His answers. So He was not just an ordinary child on the block, but He was something different--- He was the very Son of God!In this Christmas season we are not just celebrating a baby who was born but we are celebrating the birth of God’s Son who came to die for us paying the wages of our sin.Don’t get too caught up in the spirit of Christmas that you forget whose birthday we are celebrating.
God’s constant love is our place of safety in a wicked world
