Today is Christmas Eve… Tomorrow Christmas!!! Today’s “Coffee with the Lord” post is a sequel to yesterday’s post and is designed to fill the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day with wonderful reflection on the significance of the Lord Jesus Christ for all of life and beyond!!!
“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. Whoever has the Son has life! Whoever does not have Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:12)
This Old Testament prophetic passage pointing to Jesus also came to mind…
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end!” (Isaiah 9:6–7)
Those passages got me thinking… The Jesus story… From eternity past into eternity future!!! … From a manger and beyond!
Here’s what I’m going to do beginning tomorrow… I’m going to reflect on each of the following themes about Him during the following week. I’ll begin today Christmas Eve and end December 31 – What a way to prelude the New Year!). Try it… I think your appreciation for the Eternal Son of God, our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ will be enriched and deepen!
1. His eternality… His existence from “eternity past”
2. His miraculous birth
3. His sinless life and selfless ministry
4. His redemptive death
5. His victorious resurrection
6. His exalted position to the Father’s right hand
7. His promised return as “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”
8. And finally, His eternal kingdom and universal reign
