Word for the day “Born in Obscruity”

Luke 2:1, 4-5, 7 (NIV) “ [The Birth of Jesus] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.”

If you feel or have ever felt like you were Born to the wrong family, grew up in the wrong place, or feel life seems to always deal you the wrong outcome? The Bible says Jesus was “Born in Obscurity” everything that could go wrong at the time of His birth seemed as such read below for yourself.

Point to Ponder: The fullness of time was now come, when God would send forth his Son, made of a woman, and made under the law (flesh). The circumstances of his birth were very mean. Christ was born at an inn (outhouse for livestock); he came into the world to sojourn here for awhile, as at an inn, and to teach us to do likewise. We are become by sin like an outcast infant, helpless and hopeless; and such a one was Christ. He well knew how unwilling we are to be meanly lodged, clothed, or fed; how we desire to have our children decorated and indulged; how apt the poor are to envy the rich, and how prone the rich to disdain the poor. But when we by faith view the Son of God being made man and lying in a manger, our vanity, ambition, and envy are checked. We cannot, with this object rightly before us, seek great things for ourselves or our children or can we? No matter the conditions or circumstances of our Birth with Jesus in our life the best is yet to come, the Lord be with you in all you do!
