Some people rebel against their birthdays. They say:
- I was born at the wrong time
- I was born in the wrong place
- I was born to the wrong people
- I was born in the wrong circumstances
Have you ever thought or said that? Let’s look at Christ’s perfect birthday in Luke 2:1-7 to help us look at our own birthday in the right way.
GOD CHOSE CHRIST’S PERFECT BIRTHDAY
- Born on the right time (1-3): Time of national census that made Joseph and Mary travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem
- Born in the right place (4): Bethlehem was the place the prophet Micah predicted Jesus would be born (Micah 5:2)
- Born to the right people (4): Joseph was descended from David, fulfilling the OT prophecy that the Messiah would be a descendent of David (2 Samuel 7)
- Born in the right circumstances (5-7): Jesus was born in a feeding trough in a barn, sending a clear message that he would be rejected by the high and mighty but that he came for the poor and lowly.
GOD CHOSE YOUR PERFECT BIRTHDAY
- You were born at the right time
- You were born in the right place
- You were born to the right people
- You were born in the right circumstances
Praise God for Christ’s perfect birthday and for your perfect birthday.
