God With Us: Day 24

Christmas Day // Devotional Passage: Zechariah 9:9

Rejoice! The King is coming.

Tonight, our hearts are joy-filled as we celebrate the coming of the King. But this King doesn’t come as other kings before Him. He does not ride in on war-horse, his vast armies going before him. He does not come on the stairs of the government, overthrowing his enemies. He does not come in brash arrogance and inflated self-pride as those before and after him.

This King comes quietly.

Though He is the most powerful of all, He comes meekly.

Though His Kingdom reign is absolute, He asks of those who would join His realm only that they would come.

Though He alone holds the power to turn back the tide of death itself, He comes as a human baby, frail and fragile.

Though He is the One who hung the stars in place and stretched out the boundaries for the sea, He willingly, lovingly chooses to wrap Himself in humanity to save the very beings He created.

And so celebrate tonight, in thankfulness, in humility, as those who have been pulled from the grave and given life, all through the work of the King that began in the most humbling of surroundings. Celebrate the Christ-child.

He is born. Rejoice.

”Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” – Zechariah 9:9
