Happy New Year! Just like you can set your clock by the dropping of the Ball on Time’s Square, God had set the appointed time for the moment that would change the world. “When the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship” (Galatians 4:4-5). The coming of the Christ Child is the pivotal moment in HIStory—the time God set for us and for our salvation, when Jesus the Messiah came down from heaven, took on flesh, and was made man (Nicene Creed)—for us. If the coming of Jesus was just at the time God had set, what does that mean for us? The Lord of heaven and earth has bound Himself to time for our sake, even establishing our days in His book. What are the plans He has established for us for this new year?
