The idea of Jesus arriving among the sheep of Bethlehem (many of which would be sacrificed in the Temple), and Jesus being the last of the sacrificial lambs was a neat thought.

God uses all kinds of people to bring about his results.  In the case of Christmas He used Caesar.  I think we can all think of someone God has used that would normally be considered unusable by God.  God can use anyone– even the unbeliever.

Today was a good reminder that we don’t always get to see the result of the work we put in.  Sometimes we do, but not always.  I think God lets us see just enough of the results to keep us going.

With everything that has been happening in our world lately, we have been reminded about how dark the times are.  I hate to think how much darker they would be if God’s spirit was not present in his people!

“Humility is not thinking you are less, it is never forgetting the fact that it is Jesus who made you more.”  I had never thought of humility in these terms. If this is a true statement, then it seems it would be impossible for a non-Christian to be truly humble.

This devotional today reminded me of the time the Beatles claimed to be more famous than Jesus.  LOL…how arrogant can 4 men be.  We will still be speaking the name of Jesus long after all 4 Beatles are gone!

Giglio asks us to reflect on the meaning of Christmas.  The thing that always pops into my head first is Christmas reminds me the entire fate of the world hung on a little baby born in a manger.  A helpless innocent baby’s heartbeat would rule the destiny of the world for centuries to come.

This is not our home.  Most Christians realize this fact, but most Christians (including myself) don’t always act like it.

When I was growing up I read somewhere that all our hearts are broken.  As we work to put them back together, no matter how hard we try, there will always be a piece missing.  Jesus is that missing piece, and our hearts will never be totally mended until they are given over to Christ.  This is the sentiment of what Giglio writes about today.
