We celebrate our Lord's birth tomorrow.
What a wonder He was and is. Although He was the greatest and "more intelligent than they all," (Abr. 3:19) He came to serve, kneel and wash the feet of the unworthy, bless, instruct and endure abuse. He was meek and lowly (Matt. 11:29), yet spoke as one having authority (Matt. 7:29).
He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
He bore our infirmities.
With His stripes we are healed.
The world took little note of His arrival on that Spring day. He was born in the springtime to herald new life, resurrection, and rebirth. We celebrate it in the darkness of the winter which can likewise testify of the end of darkness and increase of light--for all things testify of Him. (Moses 6:63.)
The heavens themselves were stirred at His birth. Stars aligned, signs appeared, heavenly choirs sang, and prophecies, covenants and promises were vindicated through His birth, lowly life, exalted teachings, and sacrificial offering. All this before the eyes of a blind, murderous generation, who would kill their God. (2 Ne. 10:3.)
He preferred Isaiah and the Psalms to other scripture of His day. He used a small canon of scripture to expound and teach.
How worthy was the Lamb!
There is none like Him, dead or alive. We are all lost to the grave and prison without Him.
His rescue mission extends to all mankind. We will all be rescued from the grave. He intends to work to bring about our immortality and eternal life (Moses 1:39), even if this requires worlds without end (D&C 76:112).
A Roman centurion and his cohort said it best: "Truly this was the Son of God." (Matt. 27:54.)
