Day 3 – November 29
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 ESV
What? A child born to a virgin? God with us? You simply cannot make this up. The plot of God’s providence is so incredible, so beautiful, and so perfect. And the bonus? The Israelites had only the rescue from Egypt and the Red Sea crossing as evidence. We have over 300 prophecies fulfilled, and the entire life and ministry of Jesus as evidence.
His second coming is imminent. You can count on it. Make room.
Father, we are face down in awe of Your providence and plan of redemption. We thank You for sending us Your only begotten Son. He was without sin, and yet went to the cross so that we would be counted as righteous in Your presence. This is love. As we prepare to celebrate His birth in a Bethlehem stable, we give You all the honor and the glory. Even so, come Lord Jesus. Amen.
