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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
