Can you believe it’s advent already!?!
If any year could proclaim one thing, 2020 has proven that: ‘we need a Savior.’
Romans 8:31-32 says: “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?”
WE NEED GOD WITH US!…. Can I get an AMEN!?
So as we enter this advent, its a new beginning, a fresh horizon, a time to recalibrate ourselves and for the the power of God’s incarnation in Jesus to sink in.
When I was in High School a song came out by Scott Wesley Brown entitled: This Little Child. It encapsulates what it must have been to have encountered God in the first century and discover that Jesus was God’s plan all along. The opening lyrics are as follows:
Who would have tho't that long ago, So very far away
A little child would be born and in a manger laid
And who would have tho't this little child, Was born the King of kings
The son of just a carpenter for whom the angels sing
And who would have tho't that as He grew, And with other children played
This child with whom they laughed and sang, Would die for them some day
And who would have tho't this little child, Could make a blind man see
Feed the hungry, make rich the poor, And set the sinner free
Oh who would have tho't this little child, Was who the prophets said
Would take away the sins of man, And rise up from the dead.
It’s time we reset our spiritual clock and for us to recognize the impact of the innocence of Jesus birth and the power that the incarnation brought to the world.
“Who Would Have Thought?”, God was thinking of you all the time!
