Christmas Message from Lutheran Pastor Dr. Dale Meyer

Greetings!

Once again I'm sharing The Meyer Minute. I know Dr. Meyer personally, and he shares thought-provoking Christian inspiration at its best. Enjoy.

*** The Meyer Minute for December 23, 2005 ***

“It came to pass in those days…” Who would have thought that God worksthrough the mundane things of daily life?

“…there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus.” Who would have thoughtthat God uses government for His great purposes?

“And Joseph also went up…with Mary his espoused wife, being great withchild.” Who would have thought that God works blessings though ourinconveniences?

“She brought forth her firstborn son…” Who would have thought birth isthe way God chooses to come into our world?

“and laid him in a manger.” God in a feed box? And who would think thebirth announcement would go first to minimum wage workers on the nightshift? Who would have thought that the shepherds were hurrying on thestreets because God had quickened their steps? “Let us now go even untoBethlehem and see this thing which is come to pass.”

Who thought back “in those days” that God is in the mundane things ofdaily life? “Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” And today, it is still true. God bless you in these days as you celebratethe birth of God’s Son, Immanuel, God with us. Routine made divine. “This is the day the Lord has made” (Psalm 118:24).

And that's what's on my mind today.
Merry Christmas!
