The Silent Witness of the Christmas Star


The Silent Witness of the Christmas Star

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them? (Psalm 8:3-4 NIV)

Many of us will glance at the Heavens above, and see the vast expanse of the universe for a brief moment. One day, God wrote a message of love in the stars.  “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” (Matt 2:2 NIV)

The Creator of the universe used his finger to announce to a weary and sin soaked world, that He has extended His mercy to mankind.

God’s offer of reconciliation is announced each and every day, by the presence of the stars and the moon. We don’t have to wait for a special one-of-a-kind event to appear in the Heavens. We can claim God’s offer: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV)

Many see the little Lord Jesus in the manger, at Christmas time, and never give a second thought.

Sharpen your gaze into eternity: “For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” (Romans 5:10 NIV)

The Moon and the Stars, bear a silent witness of God’s mercy which is extended to all, each and every day. The true message of Christmas is reconciliation with the Creator of the universe.

A reply to November Islam’s letter of hate


As Christians, our mission is always reconciliation of man with God.

Col 1:20 tells us: “and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (NIV)

Christ tells us in Matt 5:44 “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” (NIV)

An example of this can be found in the parable of of the Good Samaritan. (Luke 10:25-37). A little historical background is in order. The Jews hated the Samaritans, and vice versa. A Priest and a Levite happen upon the man, and miss the opportunity. Their priority was to get home.

The Samaritan on the other hand, saw opportunity. He in-convenienced himself, and became involved in this man’s life, even though they were enemies.

Proverbs tells us: “In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.” (Proverbs 25:22 NIV)

Today is Reformation Sunday. Sola fide. In faith alone. Because of Christ’s atoning sacrifice of Himself on Calvary’s Cross, I am restored to a right relationship with God.

I choose to live my life by faith, and not by sight. (2 Cor 5:7)
