Luke’s simple, straightforward, unembellished language describes the most profound birth, with the most far-reaching implications, in the history of the world. On a night like any other night, in an obscure village in Israel, unnoticed by the world, a child was born. But while His birth was like that of every other child, the child was unlike any other child ever born, either before or since. For this child was the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, deity in human flesh, Israel’s long-awaited Messiah, the Savior of the World. In His birth God entered human society as an infant; the creator of the universe because a man. As Luke picks up the story of Jesus’ birth, he demonstrates how God sovereignty orchestrated events to bring about a direct fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. AS we prepare for Christmas tonight and tomorrow, we must remember that God is in the process of making the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the world. Like His first coming, it will be like any other day, but that day will change the direction of history forever. Are you ready? Merry Christmas to you all! Enjoy your day, and celebrate God’s arrival and remember His return.
