“So God created man in His own image, in the image of
God He created him; male and female He created them.”
A tiny barn,
A mom and dad with barely enough money to get by . . .
Jesus was born, like many of us – into the ordinary.
His home? Unremarkable. His circumstances? Commonplace.
Ten fingers, ten toes and a belly button just like yours and mine.
While, he was born into the ordinary he came from the divine. He took an ordinary brown bag special and turned it into a feast for the masses. Well water became wine in his hands. Mud became a cure for blindness.
His outward appearance was ordinary but what was within him was extraordinary. Jesus knew that ordinary was a label for circumstances that only became reality when you believed they defined the light within you.
You are molded in His image, created to be the extraordinary in the midst of the unremarkable . .
When it comes to circumstances, remember . . .
You are defined by Him, not by them.
