Change is the new normal

A child is born to us, a son is given, and the government will rest upon his shoulders…and it’s peace will never end. Is. 9:6a, 7b

Jesus changes everything all the time. The Bethlehem shepherds heard about Jesus, told everybody they saw, then went back to their normal lives? The Magi returned home and never gave the new King another thought? Over the next 33 years did they wonder about Him? Did they think he was dead? The Bible doesn’t tell us their stories or if and how their encounters with the baby King changed their lives. What each of us can speak to is how believing in Him has changed each of ours. There is no ‘going back to normal’ after Christmas. There is only further up and further in.

Lord, keep changing my life.
