Daily Bible Reading: Luke 2:1 – 24
Verse of the Day: Luke 2:6 – “And it came to pass, while they were there, the days were fulfilled that she should be delivered.”
We are guilty of relegating the second chapter of Luke to the Christmas season. We hardly read it other than Christmas Eve or Day. What a great mistake that is. This passage contains “the greatest story every told.”
It is too important, too magnificent, to encouraging to be only a Christmas tradition. Today, read the verse of the Daily Bible Reading out loud. Muse over what it meant for the Creator of the Universe to step down from His Throne and wrap Himself in the flesh of a helpless little baby. To make His residence here. To become like us so that we can become like Him. This section of Scripture deserves our praise as we accept the challenge to adore Him today. Now. Completely. Without hesitation.
Prayer: Jesus, I pause to bow before You in pure adoration and worship. What You did by coming as a baby and growing into the Man who would die for me, provide my restoration and redemption to the Father. All glory to You.
