|Galatians 4 v 19
"My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until
Christ is formed in you."
I labour in birth until Christ is born in your life. Christ has to be
born in me. It will change our lives. Then we will be like Him and
have His nature within us. It will revolutionise our lives if He is
born in our lives.
John 1v11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did
not receive him.
Jesus came to his own people but they did not receive Him. He was
born in Bethlehem. The shepherds and others came to see him but the
people in Bethlehem did not receive him. Jesus was right in their
midst and they carried on with their lives and they did not accept
Luke 2 v 18 The shepherds did go to see Jesus.
In Luke 2 v 18 it
says and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to
them. The people of Bethlehem did not recognise Jesus but the
shepherds received the news from the angels. I was reminded of shepherds
in Europe. They have a big coat and every thing they have they carry
on their backs; even their pots and pans. The shepherds were dispised
by other people but when they received this great revelation, they
went and told others about it and everyone who heard it were amazed by
what they said.
