The Lord himself is God; he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Psalm 100:2
For God alone my soul in silence waits; truly, my hope is in him. Psalm 62:6
What comes to mind when we reflect on the Messiah coming as a child, raised on this earth as a young boy? Is this normally how you think of Jesus?
Almighty God, give all of us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
