Christmas Star

On the way to church, after observing the Christmas Star, I passed the life size Nativity that is displayed each year in our town. I noticed the star shinning above this scene. How familiar and fitting! I had to pull over and take a picture. The street light and neighbor’s lights made it hard to see, so I knelt to get a better view. As I knelt beneath this star to get a picture, I suddenly realized I was kneeling before baby Jesus in the manger. I also became aware of the passersby. They probably wondered what I was doing. Maybe some thought I was there bowing to this place as a shrine or to some natural phenomenon in the sky. The truth is, every day I bow in worship to My Lord and Savior who is not in a grave and who created the earth and sky and everything in it. Nevertheless, this night I was reminded that when He came to this earth, He knew me. He came for me. He was at the beginning of my story, He is with me in the middle, and He will be there in the end. “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
