No Insignficance

December 19, 2018

“Advent reminds us that no place is too small for God’s presence,” writes Max Vincent in Disciplines 2018 (page 417).

He’s talking about what the Old Testament prophet Micah said about Bethlehem, and what God did to fulfill that promise.

Rather than the magnificent Holy City of Jerusalem, little bitty barely-had-a-bus-stop Bethlehem.

Hmmm.

Let’s you and me think about that. And some other details of the Bible’s Christmas   Story —-

Rather than royalty, an ordinary but faithful Jewish girl.

Rather than a famous super hero, a regular carpenter.

Rather than well-trained rabbis, some shepherds.

Rather than people steeped in the Law and the Prophets, a bunch of astrologers from someplace.

—- Hmmm.

“Advent reminds us that no place is too small for God’s presence.”

And that no person is beyond the reach of God’s love.

In God’s way of doing things, there is no insignificance.

By the grace of God, that includes us.
