No wonder the world stands still on the day we remember His birth. His life is like the sun in the Milky Way. Its influence is so massive the whole world revolves around it, even when we are not aware of it. But at Christmas, His influence seems more vivid than usual. The Gospel rings out from every carol and cantata, from every card and nativity scene. How I want the world to understand the power of what these things convey!

The life of Jesus is truly the light of humanity. He stands like a sparkling diamond among the dark coals of human history. His life has brought light to an otherwise bleak and hopeless world. If you could view the timeline of human existence all at once there would be one mark that shines as bright as the star of Bethlehem. It would be the life of that humble carpenter from Nazareth
