An old, old story – A story for today

‘The old, old story – it is ever new’. With each passing year, we move further away from the time when Christ was born. Further away from the time when He was born, but not further away from Him – He is still ‘Emmanuel…God with us’ (Matthew 1:23)! We may never visit the place where He was born. Many visit Bethlehem as tourists without becoming worshippers. They look at the place where He was born – but they do not love Him! They have ‘no room’ in their hearts for Him (Matthew 2:7). There is a place where you can find Jesus. Love will grow, worship will become real, when you find Him – in your heart! ‘O come to my heart, Lord Jesus. There is room in my heart for Thee’ (Mission Praise, 697). Don’t just remember His birth. Experience it – ‘O Holy Child of Bethlehem…Be born in us today'(Church Hymnary, 172).
