The “Jesus Story” … A Manger and Beyond…

The empty manger

Tomorrow begins the week of Christmas… In my Bible reading today, this was one of the passages…

“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life! Whoever does not have Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:12)

This Old Testament prophetic passage pointing to Jesus also came to mind…

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end!” (Isaiah 9:6–7)

Got me thinking… From eternity past into eternity future… The Jesus story! A manger and beyond!

Think I’m going to reflect on each of the following themes about Him during Christmas week (Don’t know though… I may begin Christmas day instead and end on December 31 – What a way to prelude the New Year!). Stay tuned…

  1. His miraculous birth
  2. His sinless life and selfless ministry
  3. His redemptive death
  4. His victorious resurrection
  5. His exalted position to the Father’s right hand
  6. His promised return
  7. His eternal kingdom and universal reign
