For the last few weeks we have gone back and studied and remembered what it took for the Christmas story to take place.
The many people like casts in a play, each had a role, each had a circumstance they were involved in.
God directed and placed each and every one of them in a certain role so that the story could be fulfilled.
John 3:16-18The Message (MSG)
[16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son.
And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.
Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it.
And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.”]
I believe nothing was by accident. God KNEW Mary needed Joseph, HE knew Joseph needed her, He KNEW Mary would need the encouragement of Elizabeth.
He knew that the Shepherds would not be believed as credible witnesses had they NOT seen the baby and proclaimed with ‘conviction’ what they had seen.
God KNEW everyone would need the guidance and shock value of the Angel Gabriel to make HIS point.
It was all thought out and all master planned.
Isn’t it wonderful?
Isn’t it so simple?
John 3:16Revised Standard Version (RSV)
[16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.]
I hope you have come to believe too.
