Out of all the four Gospel accounts recorded for us in the New Testament, none is more descriptive in documenting the events surrounding the nativity of Jesus Christ than those recorded by Luke. If I had just one word to capture the expression of my heart as I read through the account of the events surrounding the birth of Christ in the first two chapters of Luke, it would be awe; if I had another, it would be amazement!! Dreams, visions, prophetic utterances, angelic visitations all heralded the birth of this holy child, bearing witness to the One who the prophets long ago foretold would come – Christ the Lord, the Saviour of the world!!
Sadly, many today, even Christians, tire of hearing the Gospel. Clichés have become all too familiar to us and we have lost the awe and amazement of this good news. May those who have yet to hear the Gospel, hear and be saved!! May those to whom it has become dry and impersonal, rekindle their love and adoration for the King and serve Him with all their being!!
