Not in Jerusalem the city of the great king, Micah calls
this small town “little among the thousands of Judah.”
Where the simple shepherds gathered to share about their
Sheep, sharing about where the grazing is best, where the
best water was for thirsty sheep, a small market town,
where necessary supplies for another day of life were bought.
Here Jesus was born, in Bethlehem among the lowly, in a stable
Where “cattle were lowing” laid in a manger where bossy cow
Licked it clean with her coarse tough, God comes to us in facts
God’s word brings to us Facts; earth had heard a promise 5000
Long years ago “I will send the seed of the women” “to Him
Shall the gathering of the people be” “But when the fullness
Of time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a women,
Made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law.
Galatians 4:4,5 Born to fulfill all righteousness, fact . Born to die

Dead the mighty conquer’ sin and death had no power over
Him. Fact. Sin was atoned for, law was satisfied, Our Holy God is
Reconciled with us,Fact. Let us praise the child of Bethlehem,
