Daily Nugget

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

In his portrayal of the nativity scene, Rembrandt focused attention entirely on the Babe in the manger. He did this by painting a shaft of light so that it falls exclusively on the Christ-child. Although he included other figures, they are shrouded in shadows. Rembrandt wanted nothing to detract from the significance of that baby—who was God in the flesh. He wanted Christ to be the sole object of adoration.

Luke 2:17 tells us this about the shepherds' visit,
“And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.”
When they came back sharing the good news, it wasn’t about the angels, or the stable, or the star; it was about God’s only Son sent to redeem us from our sin.

"God, thank You for your love to us.

Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
