Christmas Unwrapped ~ Day 18

Lord at thy Birth

"The moment that he came on earth he was a king.  He did not wait till his majority that he might take his empire; but as soon as his eye greeted the sunshine he was a king; from the moment that his little hands grasped anything, they grasped a scepter, as soon as his pulse beat, and his blood began to flow, his heart beat royally, and his pulse beat an imperial measure, and his blood flowed in a kingly current.  He was born a king."  
~Charles Spurgeon~

Did you ever stop to think about that, 
about what that actually means to be 



I mean, 
WHO DOES THAT????!!!!!!!

According to Charles Spurgeon, 
the answer is no one.

No one, 
except Jesus, 
has ever caused the people to sing "Glory to the newborn King".

Surely babies are born as princes or princesses, 
but not as Kings or Queens.

Luke 1:30-33
And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.  And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.  He will  be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.  And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."

How cool is that?!!
