I cannot even imagine the great and glorious night of Christ's birth throughout the heavens and earth. Everything would be forever different because the long-awaited Messiah had arrived. Who could truly understand God's plan to display His glory in the form of an infant born of such modest means? Wrapped in swaddling clothes, nestled in the wonder and awe of the moment, this one baby caused the sky to fill with heavenly hosts who gathered above a simple stable to worship the new born king. When God's shining glory broke through the night sky it simply had to be dazzling.
God's glory still breaks through the darkness of man's heart and again and again changes everything. We give glory to God because Christ didn't stay immortalized as a baby. Our hearts break forth in hallelujahs each time the risen Lord redeems another lost soul.
Glory belongs to the Lord not only for what He does, for miracles, for healing, for provision and protection. He deserves glory for who He is...King of kings, Lord of lords, Immanuel--God with us. We never have to be alone because His glory breaks through every darkness to shine the light of His love. May this Christmas be all about His glory and the works of His Spirit in the human heart. May each new day of the new year bring a song of hallelujahs to our lips. May our lives bring Him glory until we circle the throne with the angels in heaven and sing in unison with them, "Glory to God in the highest."
