Recognize The Ultimate Christmas Present

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. ~ Micah 5:2NIV

Without Christ, there is no Christ-mas. Without the Son, willingly coming to the earth to die for our sins, there would be no salvation, no Christmas, and no presents because we would have nothing to celebrate, and the old devil would have no need to tempt us into sin because we would all be headed straight for the Lake of Fire.

But one glorious day, in the fullness of time, the King of Glory stepped out of eternity and into time, splitting time in two, dividing time by His miraculous birth into B.C. and A.D.

A.D. stands for Anno Domini, which is Latin for “In the Year of Our LORD.”

B.C. means Before Christ or a better understanding is Before the Birth of Jesus Christ. Because, really, there was not a time before Jesus. Jesus did not come into being at His birth. Christmas time is not the celebration of Jesus coming into being. Jesus was from eternity.

We don’t just serve a good prophet who did good things and was a good man. No. We serve the God who was, is, and is to come—the one who was from before the beginning of time. Jesus’ origins did not begin in a manger in Bethlehem Ephrathah; He was from eternity and will be to eternity. He has no beginning and will have no end. This is who we serve, and this is who came to us as the first and ultimate Christmas present.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Recognize The Ultimate Christmas Present.
