All to be Loved

December 12, 2010 Donna New

But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, you are little to be among the clans of Judah, [yet] out of you shall One come forth for Me Who is to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth have been from of old, from ancient days (eternity).

This ancient man, who walked and talked with Abraham about Sodom and Gomorrah, who tangled with Jacob, who was in the fire with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego is going to be born as a baby in little Bethlehem.

He would be placing Himself in on a planet where He would learn obedience through suffering. Why would He do that for me and for you? He suffered each day to learn how to obey His Father. That’s light years away from heaven where He ruled in glory from ancient days.

He also came to be loved. He was loved by Mary his mother. He was loved by his father. He had followers that loved Him devotedly the three years of His ministry here. And He has us, who love Him and serve Him, however awkwardly.

That’s worth coming for. To be loved is His heart’s desire. The first and greatest commandment is to love Him with all your heart, soul and mind. He went through a lot to find that love from us but to Him it’s worth it. That’s why He came as a baby, this Man of ancient days.
