- December 2021 - A Reverent Christmas -
Although we usually associate Christmas with happy celebrations, it's also
an appropriate time for serious reflection about eternal matters. When
we're busy with holiday activities and surrounded by friends, family, food,
and fun, it's easy to forget about the temporary nature of earthly life. Preoccupation with plans and dreams makes death seem distant. But there will come a day when our bodies are laid in the grave and we must
stand before God.
The event in Luke 2:21-35 happened just eight days after Jesus' birth.
While Mary was experiencing the joy of being a new mother and the
wonder of being chosen to care for God's Son, she came face-to-face with
the pain that awaited her in the future. Simeon prophesied that a sword
would pierce her soul (Luke 2:35). Although she couldn't understand it at
the time, this was a prediction of her precious son's death.
The cross hangs like a shadow over the manger because this tiny baby
was destined to die for the sins of mankind - 33 years later He bore God's
wrath on the cross for our transgressions so we could be forgiven.
