December 21

“But 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 (NIV)

We do not know the exact date Jesus was born. That is not recorded for us. We do know that He did come perfectly on time. Jesus came when the time had fully come. And who was it that had set that time? It was, of course God Himself. He had set the year, the month and the day. And He had set the hour and the place as well. So we know that when Jesus came was when the “time had fully come.” The same thing is true with the events of our lives. God allows things to come into our lives to fulfill His purpose for us. Things don’t just happen and they aren’t accidental. Let us praise God for that and trust Him. 

* The Greek word for adoption to sonship is a legal term referring to the full legal standing of an adopted male heir in Roman culture.
