In those days, Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. Matthew 2:1
Today you are invited to consider another of the men who were involved in the story of the birth of Jesus. We have looked at Joseph and Zechariah – and now we consider the Roman Emperor himself. He would have been surprised to learn he was used by God to bring about the fulfilment of the prophecy that Jesus, the Saviour of the world, was to be born in Bethlehem. Today be aware of your interaction with others – for you never know how God will use a chance meeting or a kind action to impact the life of another. Caesar had no idea – neither do we. Spend some time today asking God to help you to deal with people in a way that will draw them closer to Him, whatever their relationship with Him may be.
May God bless you with fruitful connections with others in His Name, whether you know about the results or not.
