All the promises of the prophets were carried on the shoulders of the One born in Bethlehem, and he fulfilled them all.
For further study: Micah 5:1 - 6
For parents and children: Ask your children what a promise is and get them to think about why we make promises. Talk to them about how the birth of Jesus proves to us that God always keeps the promises he makes.
"[The prophecies about Jesus] remind us that the great author of history's plot determined that the overarching theme of his story would not be judgment, but grace. And he knew that if the story were to be a grace story, the central character would have to be none other than his Son."
“God’s plot doesn’t rest on your wisdom, power, or goodness, but on the unstoppable zeal of the One who is perfect in his holiness and plenteous in his grace, and because it does, the last chapter, for which we all long, is secure.”
For the month of December, there will be daily posts based on Paul Tripp's Advent book Come Let Us Adore Him.
