Your Pastor Chris Asks, Why Did the Christ Come to Earth When He Did?

With the web and television as well as radio, He could have reached the whole world forthwith with His message.

Here’s your answer: I’m grateful for every single new technology God has given us today to help us bring the expectation of the Gospel to nearly every corner of the whole world. Every day we learn of people reacting to Christ through our own web ministry (frequently in nations that are otherwise closed to the Gospel), and also the same holds true of other ministries.

But God didn’t produce an error by sending Jesus to earth 2,000 years ago! Think, by way of example, of the huge numbers of people that have dwelt since if His coming had been delayed then who’d never have had the opportunity to hear of Christ. Remember: God’s time is always perfect, and when Jesus was born, God knew the world was entirely prepared for His coming.

Although it several weeks away in case you Pastor Chris are like most other people, you’re probably already getting excited about Christmas. In the midst of all its busyness, nevertheless, don’t lose sight of the miracle of that first Christmas: the coming in the whole world, of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Make Him the centre of your Christmas – and all of your life – this season.

In addition, don’t ask God to help you tell others about His love, and His power to alter our selves.
