- Was announced by a bright comet-like star resting over Bethlehem; but how many truly noticed?
- Was announced by three wise kings, who were willing to travel a great distance, bringing precious gifts; but who else makes such an effort?
- Was announced by Angels and heavenly host singing praises to God; but who was willing to sing along?
- Was announced by poor shepherds tending livestock in the fields, who went to see this miracle in a manger; but who else will go to see?
- Was announced by a radical Holy man by the name of John who prepared the way for the coming of the Lord; but who is willing to make the effort to prepare?
- Was witnessed by thousands through teaching, deliverance, and miracles; do our lives show the change?
- Was witnessed by followers and fans, some of whom wrote about their experience; are we recalling ours?
- Was followed by the countless faithful for nearly 2000 years as they lived for the promise; what are we living for?
- Is being remembered year after year during this holiday season; are we taking time to remember?
- And is being re-announced here and now by a worthless wretch; will we slow down and take time to receive the most important gift that we could ever receive?
