Cross thoughts: Christian ideas seen in Sudanese every day life.
Many of the clinics I visited in Sudan had sick babies in attendance. All those babies were (and are) special babies to someone. Their mother, father, grandparent, brother or sister, I'm sure loves them very much.
The Christmas baby we celebrate was (and is) a special baby, to everyone!
He was to be called JESUS because he would save his people from their sins, Matthew 1:21.
This baby did not come from Sudan or South Sudan, Europe or the Americas. This baby was (and is) God come from God.
He was not Arab or African, Dinka, Moro or Nuer. He was very different to everybody else.
He was (and is) God incarnate. That is 100% God and 100% human, in one man.
By faith Mary agreed to mother the Son of God, Luke 1:38.
By faith Joseph accepted to appear to be the father of the Son of God, Matthew 1:24.
By faith we can choose to accept Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour of the world, Luke 2:11.
Have you personally done so? Will you do so now? He came to become your Saviour.
