And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Luke 2:8-12
Generally, Christians acknowledge today as the day Jesus was born by a highly favored virgin who was married to an offspring of David. Historians suggest that Jesus was born in the cave and the bible says He was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger because Joseph couldn’t find a better place or proper maternity ward. What an incredibly humble beginning for the source of creation, who own everything in heaven and on earth. Even after He grew up and began His earthly ministry people still looked down on Him because His family had been instructed to relocate to Nazareth, Nathaniel pointed asked if anything good could come out of Nazareth. John1: 46.
But the bible counsels us not to despise the days of little beginning because in as much as beginning is been small, our ending will be great. People may be wondering about your life and saying nothing good will ever come out of you, that you will never become someone great in this life. Some may have gone beyond wondering to do whatever they can do to ensure that nothing good comes out of you. They may even refer to generations before you who lived and died as vagabonds, your family affliction has become a folk tale making your bloodline the scum of your community.
Let today’s commemoration of the lowly birthday of Jesus Christ comfort you. Yes Jesus was born in a cave but He eternally sits in glory as Lord over all things. Though your beginning is small, the end shall be great. It is in your DNA as a Son and Heir of the Grace and Glory of God to grow and become great in spite of all the opposition you may face along the way.
