Great Expectations

The scriptures are filled with stories of birth. Some of them are long-awaited and predicted by angels. Others are unexpected and slightly controversial. But what they have in common is that each birth pointed forward; newborn glimpses of what God would ultimately do through the birth of Jesus Christ, who would enter this world crying, cold, and with the expectations of all humanity upon his tiny shoulders.
