Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
December has come and this is the month we celebrate – not the mythical figure called Santa Claus — but the historic birth of the Son of God Himself, Jesus Christ. You recognize, of course, that you acknowledge that fact every time you place a date on a document or a letter. This is 2016 AD, which stand for Anno Domino, Latin for the “Year of our Lord 2016”. It is meant to acknowledge that we are now 2016 years from the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ. So even those who do not wish to honor Him, do so every day.
But that is not the last time they will pay Him Homage. In Philippians 2 we read:
God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Bottom line is, you can fall at His feet now in repentance and faith and go away cleansed and forgiven, or you can fall at His feet in the future when He will be your judge. It’s really up to you.
