Luke chapter 2 beginning in verse 18, “And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds, but Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.“
The first Christmas, it is evident, that Mary, the mother of Jesus was not fully sure of just what purpose of God was being fulfilled through her life. As we gather this year to celebrate the birth of Christ, consider that perhaps there is something greater which God has destined for your life than you yet fully realize. Christmas is a time of miracles, a time of angels, a time of joy, Christmas in God’s heart is all about you. It’s time for you and I again to ponder these things. It’s time for us to ask, “Oh God what is your purpose through my life? And would You give me the courage to believe that in your strength it can be fulfilled?” It’s time to pray.
