The first day of winter. Looks like winter in the picture I took this morning. But it's 66 degrees outside. Things aren't always as they appear.

Two thousand years ago, the Jews were looking for the Messiah, surely coming as a King-- they thought. And they missed the baby born of a virgin.

Isaiah 7:13-15

14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Jesus fulfilled more than 300 prophecies. Yet, people reasoned away the truth before them and chose the lie.

In this crazy world we live in, determine to seek the Truth, the Way and the Life. Don't settle for what is reasonable, sounds good, or is comfortable.

Instead, listen to the still small voice, look with the eyes of your heart, and seek the King of Kings who came as a baby to bring peace between God and whosoever would believe that Jesus is the Messiah.

Two thousand years ago, the shepherds were told and believed, Wise men saw the sign in the stars and left what they were doing to seek the King of Kings. And they found Him.

Seek Him with all your heart, mind, and strength. HE is near.

Hark the Herald Angels Sing
1.Hark the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies;
With the angelic host proclaim, "Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory! to the newborn King!"

  1. Great thoughts on things not being what they seem. How about 80 degrees on the first day of Winter.
