A King Like This

Christmas is exactly one week away and I can’t help but think of our King as the days are nearing. I have already mentioned how much I love the Advent season as we anticipate and celebrate Jesus. What always amazes me about the birth of Jesus is there was nothing special about His arrival into this world.

Joseph and Mary were ordinary people, just like you and me, but God chose them to birth the Savior. Not only was there nothing glamorous about either of them, but there was certainly nothing high class about Jesus being born in a manger. It’s so easy to believe the lie that everything around us has to be perfect, but nothing was with the birth of Jesus. A manger. A carpenter. An unwed teenager. And, a small town named Bethlehem. It was an ordinary place, with ordinary people. Joseph and Mary did nothing to deserve the honor, but God chose them

This story of the birth of Jesus on Christmas day should remind you that even when you feel weak, inadequate, insignificant, poor and undeserving, you are in the perfect place for a miracle. Whatever you are facing today, how can you focus your heart and mind on the promise of God during this season? God wants to birth a miracle in your Bethlehem.

Spend this Christmas lifting your eyes up to the light. Your circumstances around you might be dark, but Jesus is always shining. I love this song by Chris Tomlin, and I hope you too enjoy praising a wonderful King like Jesus!

A King Like This

A King like this, majesty
Laying in a manger
A King like this
Unto us is born a Savior
The Light, the Light has come
A King like this, the highest
Name and the song of heaven
A King like this born of
Flesh into our suffering
The Light, the Light has come

He is Christ, the Lord
He is Christ, our Savior
I bow my heart before no other name
I bow my heart before no other King

A King like this, a saving
Love that would not forsake us
Betrayed by a kiss and led
To the cross for our forgiveness
The Light, the Light has come

He is Christ, the Lord
He is Christ, our Savior
I bow my heart before no other name
I bow my heart before no other King

He is Christ, the Lord
He is Christ, our Savior
I bow my heart before no other name
I bow my heart before no other King

A King like this, a throne of grace
That will stand forever
The angels sing glory, glory, hallelujah
The Light, the Light has come
The Light, the Light has come

    So hard to imagine Mary as a YOUNG girl too…
    It’s so amazing to read the Christmas story – the whole Bible really – & see how God does use ordinary people… but we give it not much thought about how God STILL uses ordinary people even today.

    LOVE me some Chris Tomlin – all year round

    What a lovely reminder, and yet so simple beautiful to think what happened a week from today. This season is a season of miracles. From being able to afford food on the table for a family, to having a job and for me personally – having God choose me (??) to carry twins. He choose me to deliver 2 lives into this world (by the way I’m pregnancy crying over here, I’m literally making myself cry). I feel so honored and blessed. He is the great I AM!

    What a great song Caroline. It’s so incredible to think how humbly our King came, but how extraordinary he is in our lives daily. He is our light and hope.

    Great message Caroline. I love how you mention His birth was ordinary. Sometimes we get extraordinary things out of the ordinary in our lives. 🙂

    What is so cool about Christmas is that even though it isn’t the right time for Jesus’ actual birth (He was born in Aug/Sept) it IS the time that based on science would have been his actual conception. And THAT is truly a celebratory factor because it is THAT moment that God is conceived as man…brought from light to darkness…on the Darkest day of the year perhaps? (Winter solstice) So cool.

    And if you read in Luke it talks about how when Mary walks in to see Elizabeth John (in her womb) got all excited…I have always believed that is because Mary had conceived and Sweet inutero baby John felt the Light Mary had within. 🙂

    Christmas is SO much more than even a birth in a cave…I love it!
