God never does exactly what we’d expect. As we read Luke 2, we’re reminded that the King of the Universe is full of surprises. 

Not only was our powerful God brought down to be fully human, but as a baby, he was placed in a feeding trough (Luke 2:7). His first visitors were not kings or lords, but were humble shepherds (Luke 2:16)!

Do you know the best surprise? It’s found in his name, “Jesus.” The name “Jesus” literally means “the LORD saves.” God, in his amazing love, sent his only Son to be sacrificed for you. All he asks is that you believe and trust in him. Now, that’s the best surprise of all.
