Message of the Day: Jesus’ Coming Gave Honor to the World!

But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel
.’ (Matthew 2:6, NKJV)

Bethlehem is the town of Jesus’ birth, just as it was the town of David’s origin. In accordance with Micah 5:2, the messianic king is born in the town of King David. Micah predicted Bethlehem as the Messiah’s birthplace, because the Messiah was to be a descendant of David.

For the historical significance of Bethlehem, visit Jesus Was Born: A Remarkable Display of God’s Providence (Luke 2:1-7)

Though a small place so far as population is concerned, yet Bethlehem shall not be small, or be the least in honor; for the Messiah is born there. His birth gave the place an honor which could not be conferred on the larger cities by all their numbers, their splendor, and their wealth. The birth of a distinguished person was always supposed to give honor and importance to a city or country.

Jesus came as Ruler. This is one of his characters as the Messiah, who is the king of his people. The word “rule” here means to rule as a shepherd does his flock, in faithfulness and tenderness.

The coming of Jesus, our shepherd-king brought honor not just to Bethlehem but to the whole world!
