twenty-three days…

The third offering in twenty-five words of Him…
as we approach Christmas… with twenty-three days to go…

The Fall in the Garden of Eden…
led to exile from God’s presence…
Still… He continued to lead and guide His people…
through the consequences of sin…

To Abraham… He promised a new land…
Through Moses… and Joshua…
it came to pass…

He set kings on the throne…
each imperfect… faulty… corrupt…
in his own way…

To King David… a man after God’s own heart… He made a promise…

When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers,
I will raise up your offspring after you, 
who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 
He shall build a house for my name,
and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
2 Samuel 7:12-13 ESV

Another sign given…
a descendant of David…
a King who would reign forever…

Messiah…
a perfect King…
One we need not fear…
One whom we can safely submit to…
One completely trustworthy… just… upright in heart…

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea
in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east
came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born
king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose
and have come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:1-2 ESV

Jesus… He came to rule… He comes as King…

Lord… I long to live in Your Kingdom…
 each and every moment… of every day…
Teach me how to live wholly under Your rule…
