>A Baby Changed Everything


One month shy of five years ago, my life was forever altered by a bitsy baby girl. Exhausted, yet exhilarated, I clutched her tender body…pink and squirmy…and kissed the top of her forehead.

“You were so worth it,” I panted.

That sweet baby girl changed everything.

More than 20 centuries ago, another baby changed everything…for His earthly parents, several shepherds and scholars, and some others the change was immediate. However, most of the world would not know the significance of the divine descendant of David until about 30 years after He was placed in a bed of hay.

He was the only baby who changed everything for everybody…and who still can change everything for all who believe.

For it was not the first robust cries of this precious baby born in Bethlehem that brought light to a dark world. Instead, it was His last cry…the enervated, convulsive wail of a dying man hanging from a blood-drenched cross on Calvary… that changed everything…and in the most beautiful way imaginable.

I wonder if, as He drew His final breath, Jesus murmured, “You were worth it.” Because, had He not felt that, we would still be in the dark.

Instead, Jesus was born, sacrificed, and resurrected so that we too can one day live with Him in paradise. May this gift forever be your hope…your peace…your joy…and your love.


Merry Christmas,


“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2: 11-14 NIV

  4. >Your post reminded me of the carol I heard this year Baby Changes Everything. It fast became my favorite, next to Oh Holy Night. The song certainly reminds us of the journey Mary endured and what he came to do for us. It also reminded me too of the birth of my first child, I was a teen just like Mary, and only had Jesus to carry me through.
