The Maker's Birthday

Robin asked Luke if he knew whose birthday Christmas was. He said, "the Maker's". Pretty good theology for a 3 1/2 yr old. (John 1:3; Col 1:6' Heb. 1:2) Way to go AWANA's since they helped him memorize a paraphrase of John 1:3!

Three of the passages that speak of God as 'Maker' say the world's response should be to fear Him.

"By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of His mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; He puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere Him." Ps 33:6-8

"You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas, who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength, who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of the waves, and the turmoil of the nations. Those living far away fear your wonders; where the morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy." Ps 65:5-8

"Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all the peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; He is to feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols but the Lord made the heavens." Ps 96:3-5

May the nations know that Christmas is the Maker's birthday and they be in awe of Him!
