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.

Merry Christmas!

One thought on “Ordinary”

  1. Good reminder to focus on those who are less fortunate than others and who are forgotten in our family, in our community and society. God is the God of love, compassion, humility, diversity and inclusion.

    In this season of Jesus’ birthday, we all are reminded to share our God’s gospel the Jesus’ way. Through Jesus, we become the change agent for love, compassion, humility, diversity and inclusion! Let’s hope that the Holy Spirit will help each of us reach this month milestone in our walk with God and in the Holy Spirit!

    I am in working progress! Merry Christmas! ?? ✌️ ?
