You wouldn’t believe Him anyway…

If God told you a story that He had planned since the beginning of time

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

If He said that He was going to choose a girl to give birth to a baby

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

Or if He pointed out a carpenter and told you that he was going to marry the girl and they would bring up the baby together

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

And if He showed you the donkey that carried the girl safely to an Inn in Bethlehem so she could have the baby

Christmas

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

And if He happened to mention that there would be no room at the Inn and that the baby was going to be born in a dirty old stable, around the back of the Inn, surrounded by smelly animals

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

Or if God added in the story that some shepherds on a hillside were going to see an angel in the sky and the angel would announce to them that their Saviour had been born in a stable

You’d respond with a smile…

But

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

Maybe you’d be a little bit curious if God told you that three wise men would be following a star and bring expensive gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to the baby because they knew He was a King

Christmas

But still…

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

You perhaps would feel a tingle of excitement if God told you that the girl’s husband was going to be told in a dream that they would have to leave Bethlehem and flee to Egypt because the ruler of the land, King Herod, would want to kill the child

Perhaps…

But you wouldn’t believe Him anyway

You could question God when He told you that He wanted you to know that story because you were in His thoughts way before you were born

That could make you think…

But

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

If God looked you straight in the eyes and said, “I told you this story because I love you. I planned the first ever Christmas so you would see that I have loved you with an everlasting love.”

Would it change your heart?

It could…

But

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

Maybe if God finished off the story by telling you that it was no coincidence that you found this blog post

And that this Christmas you would wonder about that baby who was born in a stable so long ago, as you swallow the last piece of mince pie, while washing it down with some egg nog

God never grows tired of telling you the Christmas story

He reminds you of it every year as you decorate your Christmas tree and hang your stocking on the fireplace

The Christmas story  is re -told because it lets you know that this is how much you mean to God

But if He told you that…

You wouldn’t believe Him anyway

Merry Christmas

    Very well put. However, not being picky, but there may not have been “3” wise men, alluding to the 3 gifts..there may have been more or less. Check it out and let me know. I believe no number is mentioned. Well put anyway!
