In the Fullness of Time

“The greatest and most momentous fact which the history of the world records is the fact of Christ’s birth.” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon

Christmas, when Christ came into the world, is the center point of all of human history.   Before Christ all of the events taking place were preparing for the coming of the Savior.  Christmas is about the coming of the “fullness of time” that God promised through the prophet Micah (Mic. 5:2) that a ruler would be born in Bethlehem.  God, in his marvelous plan of salvation continued history marching toward the coming Savior.  We see it in the perfect timing of Christ’s birth.  God had prepared his world for the coming of Jesus. 

With the birth of Jesus Christ the Old Testament prophesies were fulfilled and Christ redeemed us from our sin.  Now we are looking toward Christ’s second coming.  This is the history of the world after Jesus. 

Christmas is the tipping point of history.  The promised Savior came and we and all of history are forever different. 

So, we are right to celebrate.  Christmas is VERY IMPORTANT.  Jesus presence on our planet as a human and his death and resurrection are the events that have given us hope. 

Have a wonderful Christmas time.  Thank God for sending his son into this broken world so we can enjoy Shalom with him for eternity.
