“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.” Psalm 145: 3-4
The night Christ was born in a manger, shepherds traveled to see the newborn king. Scripture tells us that they returned “glorifying and praising God” for all they had heard and seen. These men couldn’t wait to tell of God’s “mighty acts.” Since that night over two thousand years ago, the story is still being told: the story of the Word becoming flesh. We marvel at the greatness of this miracle. We marvel that God loved mankind so much that He sent His only Son to save us. We marvel that the Lord of the universe spent His first night on Earth in a lowly manger.
This Christmas season is a time to reflect on the coming of the newborn King, a time to “commend His works” to a new generation. Like the shepherds, we should glorify and praise God for this miracle. Like the shepherds, we should proclaim His “mighty acts” to the world.
