A little peek inside
“Where is the newborn King of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2 (NLT)
“My sister -in-law, ‘Holly’, will be visiting from my country. She is having dreams about Jesus. May I bring her to the play?” My wife and I looked at each other as “Alan”, on of the Middle Eastern English students, mentioned the upcoming Christmas Eve event. We had invited our entire class to attend the children’s Nativity play at a local church. Knowing that Muslims often dream about Jesus when God’s Spirit is working in their loves, we replied, “We would lobe that!”
While waiting for our friends to arrive on Christmas Eve, we pursed the program. Instead of the traditional story in Bethlehem, the play was set in the American Old West. Would this be confusing for our friends? When Alan and his family came in, we saw Holly stop abruptly. She then spoke quickly, using sweeping hand motions. She pointed to the altar, where the manger was placed. Alan translated, “This is the exact location of her dream. She walked down this aisle. She saw Jesus standing there, with his arms open for her. She bowed to Him there.” Alan pointed to the manger.
We gave Holly a Bible, and she hugged it to her heart. We needn’t have worried; juggling Chimpanzees could have been in the play, and Holly wouldn’t have noticed. She sat smiling, reading her Bible the entire time – a dream come true!
