A Strange way to save the World!

     The country music stars but on a Christmas Show last week and Rascal Flats sang the song “A Strange Way to the Save the World” and it really made me think about the Christmas Season – more than any of the other songs.  Here is a connection to listen to the song:        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1iSZi_3s00
    But here are the words to the Song… 

Sure he must have been surprised

At where this road had taken him

‘Cause never in a million lives

Would he had dreamed of Bethlehem

And standing at the manger

He saw with his own eyes

The message from the angel come to life

And Joseph said…


Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade

Why Him, with all the rulers in the world

Why here inside this stable filled with hay

Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl

Now I’m not one to second guess what angels have to say

But this is such a strange way to save the world


To think of how it could have been

If Jesus had come as He deserved

There would have been no Bethlehem

No lowly shepherds at His birth

But Joseph knew the reason

Love had to reach so far

And as he held the Savior in his arms

He must have thought…


Now I’m not one to second guess what angels have to say

But this is such a strange way to save the world

…this is such a strange way to save the world…Saving the World

    If you notice the song is as if Joseph is singing the words – and made me think – what would I be thinking if I were Joseph?  
      You know as I go forward with my Ministry that God has put on me to do – I ask the same question:   God Why Me?    How many of us sit back and second guess what has been asked of us to do..    We would be just like Joseph and thought that there could have been a better way.   But you know that God has a purpose for all of us – no matter what it is – it is how he wants it to be done. 

 So as we go forward in this Christmas Season – think about what it is that God has asked you to do.  God could have saved the World in a much different way – but he chose the way that was best for us…..

And he may be using you at the present time to save the people who you have come in contact with…….
