We seem to forget the other characters and the part they played in the Christmas story. We do need to focus on the birth of Christ since he is the reason we celebrate, but we also need to see how God used ordinary people to accomplish His will and to see the lessons that are in their lives.
So what im hoping to do over the next week is look at the individuals that played a part in the christmas story. I intend to start with Zechariah and Elizabeth, then move on to Mary, Joseph, the shepards and wise men.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and spend this time in reflection of the saviour sent, Immanuel, God with us.
