Merry Christmas 2013

Reformedontheweb would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas.

 

“Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” — Matthew 2:2.

 

THE incarnation of the Son of God was one of the greatest events in the history of the universe. Its actual occurrence was not, however, known to all mankind, but was specially revealed to the shepherds of Bethlehem and to certain wise men of the east. To shepherds — the illiterate, men little versed in human learning — the angels in choral song made known the birth of the Savior, Christ the Lord, and they hastened to Bethlehem to see the great sight; while the Scribes, the writers of the law and expounders of it, knew nothing concerning the long-promised birth of the Messias. No angelic bands entered the assembly of the Sanhedrim and proclaimed that the Christ was born; and when the chief priests and Pharisees were met together, though they gathered around copies of the law to consider where Christ should be born, yet it was not known to them that he was actually come, nor do they seem to have taken more than a passing interest in the matter, though they might have known that then was the time spoken of by the prophets when the great Messiah should come. How mysterious are the dispensations of grace; the base things are chosen and the eminent are passed by! The advent of the Redeemer is revealed to the shepherds who kept their flocks of sheep by night, but not to the shepherds whose benighted sheep were left to stray. Admire therein the sovereignty of God.

Charles H. Spurgeon-The Sages, The Star, And The Saviour; Delivered on Lord’s Day Morning, December 25th, 1870

Christmas Pause

December 23, 2010 Leave a comment

I want to say thank you for following my quotes and posts. I also want to say have a blessed Merry Christmas. We will pause to spend time with our families and to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the reason for this season.
God bless,
Hershel Lee Harvell Jr.
