get over it.

Reading the Christmas story earlier today. Rome creeps up everywhere. But this will not be a lamentation.

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world” Luke 2:1

Caesar Augustus, the one who issued in the Pax Romana, peace for Rome and a return to life, order and affluence for the entire Roman world, which pretty much was the whole of the known world. Even with all that Rome could offer–peace, provision, safety and hope–it couldn’t satiate what the heart of man is really after. Enter baby Jesus to save us from our misguided ways of figuring out ourselves and the life we’re given.
