Ann Spangler says "One of the reasons I find the gospel so convincing is that it's nothing I would have dreamed up." So true. If you were to dream up a plan of salvation, would it begin with a baby--one who needed to be changed and fed? One who surely got sick? Would you choose him to be the illegitimate son of a teenage mother?
Let us remember that children have a special place in Jesus's heart. He even said we must receive the kingdom of God like a little child, with faith and humility.
May we allow Him entrance to our hearts with the trust of a child, this season and the days to come.
