‘If we are faithless, He remains faithful – for He cannot deny Himself.’ 2 Timothy 2:13 (ESV)
Now that we have put 2016’s Thanksgiving behind us, it is time for us to turn our attention to the holiday we’ve created called Christmas. For me, it is still a little early to break out the 20+ standard Christmas tunes, but it is not too early to consider the amazing truths about our God we see illustrated in the Christmas story. Tonight, join me in enjoying ‘Great is Your Faithfulness’ from the Newsboys.
The Christmas Story is about the fulfillment of God’s promises to his creation. He promised Abraham that one day his Heir would bless the nations. He promised David that one day a king from his lineage would forever rule on his throne. He promised Adam way back in the garden that one day He would crush Satan under his feet, which would free us from the chains of sin. ALL of these promises come true in the birth of Jesus!
However, let’s not let it stop there. How many times have you or eye forgotten a promise we made to our husband, our wife, or our children? God kept his promise to countless generations! How many times have we written off the person who has broken a promise they made to us? We’ve broken every promise we’ve made to God and yet the Salvation of Jesus will be always available to accept. We could do this over and over again, which is why I think Peter Furler finishes this song yelling about God’s greatness, not just singing.
As you prepare for your time of worship tomorrow, and as you consider the story of Christmas in the weeks to come, remember the great faithfulness of our God! – Timothy
