This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

– Luke 2:12-14 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

What was the great sign the angels were singing of? A baby wrapped in cheap cloths and lying in a dirty manger. It seemed so ordinary, yet God uses the ordinary in extraordinary ways. The birth of Jesus Christ shouts to us that the ordinary may not be so ordinary after all; that God had come to earth and associated himself with all that we experience in life. May the Christmas story open our eyes and cause us to look at the ordinary in dynamic new ways. Merry Christmas!
