"He Makes Us Babies"

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".  John 3:16

In the story of the birth of Jesus we see some main characters:  Mary, Joseph, shepherds, wise men.  Mary, Joseph and the shepherds were Jewish.  The wise men were Gentiles.  The shepherds were uneducated and considered outcast.  The wise men were highly educated and esteemed. 

What a beautiful picture we see of John 3:16 presented at Jesus' birth.  The announcement of His birth was given and an invitation to come see Him was given to male, female, Jew, Gentile, the least and the greatest-- all mankind. 

That invitation is still going out today.  "Come see".  "Come worship".  "Come receive".  They received a birth announcement.  We are still receiving a "birth announcement" as well.  An announcement and invitation to come to Him-- not to the baby, but to the risen Christ-- and experience our own "new birth".  "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God". (John 3:3)  While we are celebrating His birth.  He actually came so that we could be "born"-- born again into new life, having our sins forgiven. 

Are you worshipping His birth?  Are you celebrating His coming into the world as a baby?  As you are, rejoice that this baby came to make you a "baby"-- a new born babe, a new creation, a born-again child of God.

Have a great day.  The baby Jesus came into the world for all people in order to make us all new born babes.

For further reading:
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.   Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again".  John 3:6,7

"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby".  1 Peter 2:2  

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new".  2 Corinthians 5:17
