Ordinary Extraordinary

By Laura Kestly

 

The Extraordinary came in an ordinary way—

in human flesh to redeem and restore

In an ordinary woman, an Extraordinary birth

would fulfill the prophecies of yore.

 

Through Divine intervention

and human conception

the Savior came into the world.

Wrapped in swaddling cloth

and laid in a trough

ancient prophecy was unfurled.

 

The shepherds were told

by an angel on high

while they were watching

their flock by night

where the Savior would be

so they hastened to see

the newborn King—what a wonderful sight.

 

Wise men came from a far

being led by His star

much later to praise and behold

They fell to their knees

presenting Him with these

gifts of frankincense, myrrh and gold.

 

The Extraordinary came in an ordinary way—

in human flesh to redeem and restore

When ordinary believe

and His gift they receive

they’ll have extraordinary life evermore.

 

Isaiah 7:14, Matt. 1:18, 23, Luke 1:26-38, 46-56. 

The hour came when the Seed of the woman entered the world

(Gen. 3:15, Rom. 1:3, John 1:14, 2 Tim. 2:8, Gal. 3:16).

Luke 1:31, 2:11-20, Matt. 2:1-2, 9-11;, Col. 1:20, Eph. 1:7, John 3:16.
