And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes
lying in a manger. Luke 2:12
“Ye shall find the babe …”
We’re all familiar with those words, especially during the Christmas season. An angel appeared to unsuspecting shepherds and told them of the miracle. They left their flocks, followed the star, and found the baby Jesus, just as the angel said.
A popular song tells us that “wise men still seek Him.” From the beginning of time, men and women have looked for the promised Messiah. But He is no longer “wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.” He is now seated at the Father’s right hand, ever making intercession for his beloved children.
Most people are never more aware of the Lord of Lords than at Christmastime. But we must still continue to pursue Him. Luke 11:8-10 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
During this wonderful season, seek Him with all your heart, your soul, and your mind …
… and ye shall find Him.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
