Re:Verse reading–Luke 2:1-20 (day six)
God went to great lengths to do extraordinary things with the most ordinary of people. We are a people obsessed with notoriety and celebrity; we want to know what celebrities eat, what they wear, the places they go and with whom. We are infatuated with “extra”-ordinary people, while we pay little mind to the ordinary. Not so with God. He used an ordinary engaged couple, ordinary lowly shepherds, in an ordinary austere room to receive His Son.
God hasn’t changed; He still does extraordinary things through ordinary people. If you follow His Son He just might do the extraordinary through you.
