Christmust: Eve of a New Beginning

 

“When they were there, the time came for the baby to be born” Luke 2:6

 

“the time came”. There is anticipation and expectation. There is a fulfillment of time. There is a perfect timing and a wrong timing. There is a time for everything and some times are better than others. But this time came that changed all of history forever. In this one moment, the moment the God-Child takes his first breath, he is Human. He is now part of the human race. He is one of us. The time came for him to become one of us. The time came for him to leave home (Heaven) and join himself to others. The time came for him to be part of a different family. The time came for him to look at life from a different perspective, albeit, limited to some degree. The time came for him to understand us differently: eye to eye, face to face. The time came for him to learn to walk, talk, play and work with others. It came time for him to leave home and start a ministry. The time came for him to influence others and to contribute to society. The time came for him to die and once again leave those whom he loved. But his time did not end. Could it be that this was the real beginning of timeless time? Sure he was there in the beginning but He had no beginning. The time came for him to rise again to an earthly body. The time will come when He will come again and there will be no more time.

The time had come. The time has come…

Things to think about:
What time is it in your life right now?
How has Christ tried to come to you in your current situation and circumstance?
How is your timing lining up with God’s timing?
What is God wanting you to do with your time in the future?
How is your time being used now?
What is God saying “wait” in anticipation or expectation?
What is God birthing right now?
What has died and needs to be resurrected to new life through Christ?
What is timeless in your life right now?
How have you used time to invest in eternity?
What will you do to make the most of this time, right now?
