2015 Christmas Music Marathon Day 22

This young man is now 12 years old. He's now about 5-5" and well on his way to 6'+. They do grow up too fast! Since his parents live nearby we have seen him grow up. We watched him crawl, take his first steps, and learn to feed himself. We've laughed at his T-ball games and marveled at the plays that he can make now. We still wonder what kind of young adult he will become. I think we forget that Mary and Joseph had the same experiences.
They watched the Son of God crawl and then rise and take His first steps. I'm sure they were over joyed when He said His first words. How they must have marveled when they found a young Jesus in the temple literally expounding wisdom to those adults in the room. They must have wondered what type of young adult Christ would become. I'm sure Mary and Joseph knew that Jesus would be something special but I don't know that they ever fully grasped the meaning of the angels words when Gabriel told Mary that she wold give birth to the Savior of of the world. Many people today don't grasp that truth and they go about their lives without the hope of salvation and eternal life. Christ came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. He came into this world as a helpless infant. He will return one day as the triumphant King of kings. Have a blessed day.
