There was a babe born in Bethlehem. A simple child, born into a simple family, in a simple part of the world.
Common people. Common place. Common time.
And many people missed it. Yes, there were angels in the sky, and they told the shepherds. And yes, people knew. There was the town, and a eventually the wise men showed up. But, for the vast majority of the world, no one knew.
King Herod had to have his scribes tell him what had happened and where it happened when the Wise Men showed up, looking for Him. So many missed it.
I want to show you, this morning, who this babe is. He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords. He is Jesus. Listen to how He is described in Revelation 5: 11-13:
Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
It’s all about Jesus. He is life. He is peace. He is everything. Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing will satisfy but Jesus.
Not your job.
Not your hobbies.
Not your money. . . or success. . . . or home. . . . or children. . . . or fame. . . . or toys. . . nothing. Nothing will satisfy but Jesus.
For He alone is worthy. Please, live in that today. Worthy is the Lamb.
It’s all about Jesus. Everything.
