“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given.” – Isaiah 9:6
God loved us so much that He sent His one and only Son to die for our sins. Not only that, but He trusted us with His Son – with His perfect Son. He wasn’t just trusting Mary and Joseph with Jesus. He was trusting all of us with Him. He trusted us to protect Him. That seems like a lofty goal, doesn’t it? Protecting Jesus. Well, whether you realize it or not, you’re protecting Him on a regular basis. Every time you defend your belief in Him, you’re protecting Him. Every time you try to make a disciple of someone new for Him, you’re protecting Him. Every time you pass one of His lessons on to the younger generation (thus keeping His lessons alive), you’re protecting Him.
