Devotional 23.12.2013

All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). [NLT] Isaiah 7:14

There are various kinds of “sign” that God could have given to His people many centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ, but He chose to give them a sign of the virgin birth, a conception process which humanly speaking or otherwise was an impossible process. But it was a sign that regardless of how one tries to disprove it, came to pass two thousand years ago, and which many of us as Christians (and non-Christians) celebrate. Because without His birth, our reconciliation to our Father in heaven would not have been possible. So this season, do all you can to be in great cheer, because Jesus came in human form so that in whatever situation you find yourself in, you should always have that reassurance that you are never alone. Merry Christmas!
