|Starry Night of Mount Graham By Stefan Seip|
Under the Radar posts new episodes weekly, though this week we were graced with two, last years and this weeks sounds of Christmas~ I have to admit about this time you could be getting tired of it - but not this. :) Below is a song written by Justin McRoberts that came out in 2006 and is just one example of the fine music you will hear. What I liked about "Born Beneath These Stars," is the simplicity of the song and the magnificence of the Lord. Just looking at the stars I see each night and the vast wonder of it all is so breathe taking. Just knowing that the creator of heaven and earth came as a babe, born in a manger, beneath these same stars to set things right that we can be with Him eternal.
We celebrate Christmas to recognize the birth of Christ Jesus - the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords; who was most likely born in September? Some have said in April or even August! But I'm not here to debate His birth date or why some celebrate and some don't. I want to just recognize the Savior of the world - that is the Savior that came as a babe and become a sacrifice for the sin of ALL mankind that we may have life eternal through Him who loves us.
So from my home to your a "Merry Christmas" and when you see the magnificence of the Lord in His night time creation think of what He's done for you~
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel. (God with us) Isaiah 7:14 NAS
He heals the brokenhearted
and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.
How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!
His understanding is beyond comprehension!
Psalm 147:3-5 NLT
Isaiah 53 ESV
