Countdown to Christmas. Day 2.

Father, thank you that in your gracious mercy you determined that the old covenant's requirement of animal sacrifices as payment for sin would once and for all time become obsolete when you purposed to send a spotless lamb to a dirty stable in Bethlehem--Jesus The Christ, Your Only Begotten Son.

Our minds are too small to fully appreciate the grandeur and majesty of your plan, and we are too self-focused to express adequate gratitude, but as we marvel at the limitless love you've shown us, forgive our failure to stay amazed.

Lead us to the manger--face down, knees bowed--in contrite humility before your holiness and lowliness. That you would condescend to become a helpless infant is beyond comprehension, yet we believe and have been transformed by the miracle of grace. May we be faithful to tell the world how great and awesome are your deeds O Lord, our redeemer and King. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
