The silence was broken by visits from the Angel Gabriel, first to Zacharias and then to a young Jewish girl named, Mary. The messenger brought word--earth-shaking news—and His name was Jesus. An old barren woman conceived a son who would be the one to prepare the way of the Lord; A young virgin conceived before her marriage and traveled to Bethlehem with her husband, Joseph because of the census ruling; Shepherds witnessed, Simeon saw the Lord’s deliverer just as God promised, and, Anna saw with her own eyes and told everyone of the great news; Jesus the messiah was born in Bethlehem.
Rumblings of the promise ripple outward, for nothing is impossible with God. The Savior has come.
We celebrate Christmas and remember the story of the anticipated messiah. Yet, there is more to the story. On December 26th the songs on the radio are hushed, paper and bows are on the discount racks, and Christmas is silenced for another year. Yet, prophets told of His coming…again.
Promises are made for His kingdom reign. And we are the ones with the good news that must be given to all who will listen. Jesus is coming again. Is your heart prepared to make room for Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
Wishing you all a wonderful week as you prepare for His coming,
