There was no room in the Inn. The fancy ones were already filled. And there they were, Joesph and his wife Mary, who was about to give birth, walking down the star lit road until they came upon a barn with a manger filled with straw. And that’s where Our Lord Jesus was born.
The stars twinkled in the sky above them, serving as a guiding light to the 3 wise men, who brought with them gold, frankincense and Myrrh. Gold was traditionally given to kings, frankincense was an incense or a perfume, and myrrh was used for anointing. And so, Isaiah’s prophesy would be fulfilled. (Isaiah 60:6).
The stars were so bright that night, that the shepherds tending the sheep paid notice and were led by the Holy Spirit directly to the new born child, our Redeemer. And that is the Good News.
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!
