Our Turn At The Manger

The Christmas story can often make me  a little jealous of the  shepherds and the Magi. Those men saw the Messiah (and knew Him as the Messiah) in His infancy. What a marvelous privilege for them to kneel before Him, knowing that He brought the promise of salvation for all who would believe on Him!

Yet, every time you or I come before the Lord Jesus Christ in adoration, worshiping Him for Who He is, we share in the privilege that those men enjoyed. Like them, we hear the tidings of great joy. Like them, we can offer Him our most valued treasures.

The hymn I want to feature today encourages me to recognize that, because of God’s grace, He gives me the same honor of bowing before Him that He bestowed on the shepherds. And as the Magi could offer Him gold, frankincense and myrrh, so I can present my body as a holy offering to Him. And He extends that same grace to you, if you’ve placed your faith  in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
