Luke 2:12

The scripture for today is Luke 2:12
Luke 2:12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.
“You shall find this glorious person, however strange it may appear, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a stable! It is by humility that Christ comes to reign; and this is the only way into His kingdom! Pride is the character of all the children of Adam: humility is the mark of the Son of God, and of all His followers. Christ came in the way of humility to destroy that pride which is the root of evil in the souls of men.” Adam Clarke
The coming of Christ into this world was by both glory and humility. The angels, in glorious display, announced His presence to humble shepherds and the shepherds followed their instructions and found the Savior presented in the humblest circumstances. It was in glorious humility that Christ entered the race of man and it is through glorious humility that man enters the family God. As we, by faith, receive all that He is, the world will see Him displayed through our lives. They will see Him through us just as the world was able to see God through Him. May the life of the Savior, who came as a “babe wrapped in swaddling clothes” be lived through us, and may the world see “the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27  
God bless you as you continue in His service
