January 9, 2013: A King is Born for All

~ by Mary Galvano


Once upon a time in a faraway land lived a king born of a fair maiden. He was sent by his father to save all people and to bring them to the magnificent golden kingdom where anyone who entered would live in peace, harmony and happily ever after. All were welcome to live in the kingdom because the king loved everybody with his whole life.

Sounds like a beautiful fairytale. But guess what? It is true. This is not a fairytale. This is a real dream-come-true reality. With all the once upon a time stories of people living happily ever after, this is the best one of all and it is ours for real by simply loving the King of Kings with our whole life.

The Father really did send down His Son to save us and brings us back to His golden kingdom with pearly gates, except the kingdom is more beautiful than we could ever imagine. We are His children, heirs, and we are truly loved by the Father. Wow! This is heaven!

And do you know what is even more wonderful? Miracles really do happen and He will come again in glory. This is not made up! But this King is different from all earthly kings. He understands real humility, poverty and rejection.

Through these days of celebrating Christ coming to earth and becoming a man, let us reflect on the humility that God went through to save us so that all these REALITIES would come true. He did this purely out of love. Think of your position in life and then suddenly being placed in the lowliest position you can imagine. Perhaps you are suddenly a different creature entirely and you have no rights at all. No one can see you for what you truly are. This is what God did when he sent Jesus to us. He transformed Himself into a poor human where He was not recognized for His glory.

This story has a happy ending, though. Jesus wins the victory and is seated at the right hand of the Father forever more, and we too are welcome to sit with him because He gave his life for us. But we must in return give our lives back to God in everything we do, in whatever work you are placed to do. It is that simple and is the least we can do.

We must be like stars in the sky, like the star over Bethlehem, leading others to Christ. After all, life on Earth is only for a short time. Eternity is forever. It shouldn’t be that hard to choose which place we want to live forever in. If we work hard, sacrificing our lives for the good and for others we will be given a place in that glorious Kingdom of heaven.

We will then live happily ever after.
