Out for delivery
Good news your package is set for delivery today. Exciting news your package is out for delivery today.

Why now this time of travel
I don’t recall mention of this
No it was Hail Mary highly favored
I’ve been sent to tell you this

You shall conceive and bring forth a son
You are to call His Name Jesus
journey to Bethlehem now part of the story
House of bread, now Living He frees us

We can look back now
At traditions we’ve been taught
Have we forsaken reality
Is it exactly as we thought

It really wasn’t so silent
On that starry night
Only those engaged
Were aware of this holy sight

The journey was very grueling
Ninety miles in that day
Was more of an arduous event
For the two who were in the way

The journey had taken a toll
On Mary you know in her condition
She wasn’t really complaining
Perhaps unsettled in the transition

For the two it wasn’t really calm
Many were bustling all around
Gathering into the village
To register each in their own town

As history has painted
Oh A glorious sight indeed
But only to those who had chosen
To bow their ear His Voice did heed

For the two who walked this out
Their commitment was experiential
But to those of us who read
We know every detail very essential

He was working His plan of salvation
God was going to redeem mankind
Indeed the plan had already been written
Having it’s beginning long before this time

A decree was written then issued
requiring that all must register
a census now would be gathered
Could Caesar know about our visitor from heaven

Why now the need to take a count
What better timing of events to record
Written and spoken by the prophets
Not one minute detail should be ignored

Coming up from Nazareth
What did Joseph see
The journey dangerous and hard
Delivering to us, eternity

Wait this is just a business journey
To Bethlehem for the two
But how was Mary feeling
Aware of what was to ensue

Oh this seat we have been given
To view our Masters satisfaction
They however were living this out
Instructed only to follow a lawful action

When the days had been accomplished
Mary’s delivery time had come
All of heaven stooped to watch
The Birth of Jesus her newborn Son

Yes we should keep records
Of such marvelous timely events
We do sit in the stadium of time
Watching and waiting for redemptions ascent

He came to suffer
Our sacrifice born to die
But not once in Heaven is it recorded
This event would make them cry

For all of Heaven rejoiced
The Angels made a proclamation
Because He entered in legally
As God’s sacrifice for salvation

A glorious night yes I’ll say
When shepherds heard the news
Today in the city of David
Good News, God’s gift was delivered for you

I realize this is exactly how God kept His people engaged and Involved. Normal people who were devout, living by faith and obeying the call of God… Christ was slain from the foundation of the earth so He had to be delivered to us and for us.

Those called and chosen were looking intently for the consolation of Israel through God’s Promised Deliverer and Messiah. God continually updated and notified His people through the prophets. Each step along the way until the day came and angels heralded from heaven, “Good news today in the city of David a Savior is born to you. A host of heavenly angels jammed the airways and only to a certain few came the heavenly announcement! He’s Here! They couldn’t wait to go and tell others all they were told and heard. The Light of God for a dark and lost world has been delivered to you! Immanuel, God with us!

“The angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Luke 2:10-11 NIV

God sent word from heaven, His promised delivery, The Messiah, The One foretold through the prophets for centuries had been delivered just as God said. Consolation would come through God’s King born as a babe, and the virgin shall conceive and bring forth a Son. Yes just as it was prophesied.

Today we have a marvelous gift, God’s tracking system, available and preserved. The Holy Bible! Scriptures track all the events and allow us to track and see how God Indeed has lived and moved among us, His people from the beginning. He has never left us without hope.

Those willing to ask, to seek, to knock will find, and the door will be opened.

I pray during this season of Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Christ our Savior born to save us, we pick up and really read our Bible. The word became flesh and dwelt among us.

Take time in the coming day to research the tracking of the first Christmas Gift given. The first Christmas was the heavenly gift Born to deliver us from a dying world. The gift given by God, who gave His only begotten Son that many would come home for Christmas. Yes that is why we celebrate the season of Christ-mas!

Merry Christmas

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom!
