When royalty is presented it is always with much pomp and circumstance, the full red carpet treatment. Why? Because it is for royalty. It is just what you are supposed to do in these circumstances.
When God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to earth, one would think that the presentation would have caught everyone's attention, and that Jesus would have been hailed as the rightful king that He is right from His birth.
The truth is that He was hailed as the king, but the breath of His Kingdom goes so far beyond the scope of the human picture that the pomp and circumstance was presented on a heavenly platform.
Angels proclaimed "Glory to God in the Highest, Peace on earth, Good will towards men." The shepherds heard it and rejoiced after going to see the King.
A brand new star appeared in the sky hailing the birth of Christ. This precipitated an almost two year journey by some wise men to come and visit the newborn King.
So all the pomp and circumstance was there just not everybody recognized it for what it was.
Will you take the time this Christmas to recognize Jesus for who He is?
He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Honor Him today.
Christ in Christmas
Take time this advent season to re-align your focus on Jesus Christ.
He is the only reason for this season.
Take time each day to read the Scripture passage and to listen to the song.
