While [Joseph and Mary] were [in Bethlehem], the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. -- Luke 2:6-7 Give me a heart of faith, O God, so that I might always see Your sovereignty and grace being poured out on me in special ways. I am thrilled that You, the Creator and Sustainer of the entire universe, chose to enter my world as a child. Thank You for trusting Your wonderful salvation to human flesh so we could know that You deemed us worthy of entering our world to make us right for Yours. In the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
