TWO items were in the news at the beginning of this week.
The BBC TV six-part series ‘Line of Duty’ finished on Sunday evening with a dramatic and controversial climax. I wonder how many avid viewers worked out who ‘H’ was, and is that person still at large for the next series?
The second major news came on Monday with the announcement of the Royal birth, a son for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
A beaming and joyful Prince Harry announcing the news of his son’s birth to the waiting media.
News programmes around the world telling of this wonderful event and thousands of people filling the streets of Windsor and outside Buckingham Palace.
Just over two thousand years ago a Royal baby was born, but not in a Palace, and not in the eyes of the world’s media, but in a stable at the back of a pub. A few local shepherds and then the Wise Men were the only ones to visit him.
But now the whole world knows about the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God who came to earth to show us the love of his Father.
There is no mystery about his ‘Line of Duty’ because he came to live amongst people like us, preach the good news of salvation and then to die for us.
Let us rejoice with Harry and Meghan, but let us also invite the Prince of Peace into our lives as part of his ‘Line of Duty’.
