As I read about the “swaddling clothes” that wrapped the baby Jesus The Holy Spirit began to impress upon me about what else He was wrapped in: Love, Peace, Authority, Righteousness, Truth…

Isn’t God good? He took a simple phrase and has changed my view of Christmas. “Swaddling clothes” has taken on an entirely different meaning. I no longer see them just as cloth that kept Baby Jesus warm; to me they are a reminder of what Jesus was wrapped up in for mankind.

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7
