The Scriptures foretold of a birth that would forever change the course of human history. Right from the very beginning of human history on earth, God spoke of a miraculous birth, a virgin birth (Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14).
This Child would be sent from heaven (Isaiah 9:6,7) to redeem fallen man from the powers of darkness (Colossians 1:13) and to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8b). This Child is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, God with us (Matthew 1:24).
We live in an age where political correctness has sought to silence the proclamation of the Incarnation of the King of kings. But one day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:10, 11).
Scripture clearly records the birth of Jesus, and not to celebrate His birth to me seems unthinkable! However, to attempt to celebrate His birth apart from accepting His absolute Lordship over your life is hypocrisy to the highest degree. The message of Christ’s birth was not only a cause of great joy to some, it was also a great threat to others. Jesus is a threat to any politically correct person. Jesus is a threat to liberal theology. Jesus is God-became-flesh (John 1:1,14). He bows the knee to nobody and refuses to share our heart with anybody or anything else.
Jesus is Lord of all, or not Lord at all. Which is He to you today, my friend?
