Just As He Said | Monday, Dec. 17
Joseph went up from Nazareth to Bethlehem because he was from the house and lineage of David. Every detail came to pass just as God said it would. Everything happened by divine appointment. The amazing details of Jesus’ birth had been prophesied centuries earlier. Not just His birth, but also His life and resurrection. God’s Word always proves true. There is no one like Jesus.
What prophecies regarding Jesus can you recall? Which ones have yet to be fulfilled?
God, we praise You for the truth in Your Word. We praise You for Your promises given centuries before they came to fruition in the coming of Jesus. Jesus, we praise You as the fulfillment of all those promises. We are awed and encouraged by the authority and reliability of Your Word. We bank our lives on it. We know You will fulfill Your promises regarding things that are yet to come. As we approach Christmas day, we acknowledge that Your Word is a rock we can count on as individuals and as a church. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Generosity Monday: We are generous, never by obligation, but as an outpouring of worship in response to the Lord’s generosity to us. What act of generosity will you do today?
