Today’s chapter in the “5 Day Christmas Reading Plan” was Luke 1. My favorite verse in this chapter was “for no word from God will ever fail”. Since the beginning of time, all of creation has waited for this moment – the moment God’s promises would be fulfilled through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ.
I can only imagine the surprise of the men and women chosen to participate in this incredible privilege. Zacharias, who was serving in the temple and suffered from some unbelief. Elizabeth, who thought her chances at becoming a mother were long past. And Mary, the young woman who was going to miraculously give birth to the savior of the world.
What an incredible time to be alive! God made a promise and His word never fails. That statement was true then and is still true today. Is there any better reason to celebrate this Christmas?
