Beginning. Do you know that God was never born? He doesn’t have a birthday. He has always been here. That blows our mind away. God knew when you would be born and decided your birthday before He created the entire world. Pretty cool!!
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 NASB

Bethlehem. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born in Bethlehem. At Christmas time we often think Jesus was born in a barn, but it actually was a cave. Jesus spent His first night on earth with his mother, earthly Father, Joseph, and some animals as well. It is important to remember that the Old Testament said Jesus would be born in Bethlehem and that was hundreds of years before He was born.

“Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the offspring of David, and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David was?” John 7:42 ESV

Beautiful. Everything God created is beautiful and that includes you!! Isn’t God a great artist? We can also worship God in the beauty of His holiness. He is perfect and without sin, which makes Him beautiful in our eyes. God created a beautiful world for us to enjoy.

“Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.” Psalm 96:9 NKJV
