Nothing changes the dynamics of a family quite like a newborn. The family anxiously waits the birth then the discussion begins regarding who the child most resembles. There are tears of joy from the parents and grand parents. Everyone is looking forward to holding the baby and wondering what life's journey holds for this new arrival. The world had been waiting for centuries for the arrival of the promised Messiah. God chose to enter this world as a baby. A baby who was created in the image of His Father. A baby whose journey would end at the cross and complete the sacrifice for the sin of this world.
When we acknowledge our sinful state, admit that we are in need of a Savior, call upon the name of Christ to save us, and invite Him to live in us, we experience the new birth. Indeed, on a cold night, in a manger in the city of David, "A Baby Changes Everything." Have a blessed day.
