“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman …”
Don’t ignore Jesus Christ!
As God’s plan unfolded and the years of time moved inexorably towards the birth of his Son, God gave people many signs and prophecies and indicators that Jesus was coming. So many, in fact, that we wonder how people could have overlooked them, how they could have missed the most important event in history.
But what about today in your own life? Do you recognise the presence of Jesus Christ in your life? Do you notice the many ways God tries to get your attention, the ways he speaks to you? Are you missing out on the wonderfulness of walking with God because you are so distracted with life and its pressures that you are walking with your head down? Are you not noticing God?
Lift your head up; stop focusing on the stress factors in your life and get your mind on the things of God. God gives you many little signs of his presence with you, many little messages. Instead of ignoring them, focus on them. Ask him to open your eyes and ears to what you’re missing. Respond to the incredible God who is speaking to you. Realise that you are involved in something so much bigger than you. Get excited about it.
God wants you to know him!
