The book of Micah

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” (Micah 5:2)

Now here’s something…WE, our bodies, hearts, and minds are Israel. Now, read it to reference yourself: “…though you (you the reader) are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me (Christ) one who will be ruler over Israel…” In other words, out of each person who seeks Christ—the beautiful qualities He represents, love, charity, grace, mercy, etc., for those who seek to be these things, Christ will be born in them—and something very old, from ancient times, perhaps the purity of God’s first creation? If we could ever strive to be that pure! Free of malice and deceit, not only against others but against ourselves. There is something very organic in Christ, very real and that is why we call Him Truth. And Truth is always pure. Though we are small, we can do great things if we abide in Truth.
