He said to me, ‘You are my son;
today I have become your father.
8 Ask me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
As we thought about on Christmas Eve, the Christmas story is a highly political one. Its the story of God installing a new King, ushering in a new kingdom, new politics, a new way of relating to one another and to him. The new King is, of course, Jesus.
With the angels, the shepherds, the wisemen and so many more, we confess ‘Jesus is Lord!’
