Humble beginnings

When you think of a King, I guess we all tend to think of a palace or castle with lots of rooms full of expensive and beautiful artefacts.

That image couldn’t have been further from the humble beginnings into which Jesus was born, a stable.

God could have chosen to let Jesus be born into palatial surrounds, with everything he could possible need close at hand. However, he instead chose Mary and Joseph, ordinary everyday people, to be Jesus’ parents.

Jesus was born in the lowliest of places, a stable where the animals were kept, but that didn’t matter to Him or to God, because ultimately where he was born did not define the person he was to become.

So whatever your beginnings in life, remember that God’s Son Jesus was born in a lowly stable, and became the Saviour of the World! So believe that no matter what your background God, can help you become just what he has planned for you.

 Nativity Carol

 Born in a stable so bare,
 Born so long ago;
 Born neath light of star
 He who loved us so.

 Far away, silent He lay,
 Born today, your homage pay,
 Christ is born for aye,
 Born on Christmas Day.

 Cradled by mother so fair,
 Tender her lullaby;
 Over her son so dear
 Angel hosts fill the sky.

 Far away, silent He lay,
 Born today, your homage pay,
 Christ is born for aye,
 Born on Christmas Day.

 Wise men from distant far land,
 Shepherds from starry hills
 Worship this babe so rare,
 Hearts with His warmth He fills.

 Far away, silent He lay,
 Born today, your homage pay,
 Christ is born for aye,
 Born on Christmas Day.

 Love in that stable was born
 Into our hearts to flow;
 Innocent dreaming babe,
 Make me Thy love to know.

 Far away, silent he lay,
 Born today, your homage pay,
 Christ is born for aye,
 Born on Christmas Day.
