The King is coming but not as you expect.
One of the tender parts of the Christmas account is the prophecy that Christ would be born of a virgin. As we understand the Scripture, Adam is the one held responsible for the fall of the human race (Rom 5) and therefore if Christ had a human father, He could not have a sinless nature. And as tender is this prophecy is, it is found in a time in Israel’s history that is not good spiritually, nationally or relationally. Judah (the Southern Kingdom) is being ruled by Ahaz, a king who did not walk with the Lord, had sacrificed his son as an offering to foreign gods, and was being threatened by Israel and Syria. Such an undeserving king was given the great opportunity of asking for a sign from God without any limitations. And even though he refused, feeling he did not what to “Test the Lord,” he failed to realize his whole disobedient life had been testing the Lord. God goes ahead and acts anyway and gives the sign that help will come through a humble virgin by God sending Himself (Immanuel… God with us). Judah had been led away from God by Ahaz and yet God’s answer is to provide “God Himself.” Since God was so gracious to come to Ahaz’s aid, what might be our expectations of Him as we head towards a new year? Ephesians 3:20-12 says that “God is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Let’s make it our ambition to “ask and think” bigger than ever before of what He can do in the New Year and enter it “Expecting” to see Him do the unusual.
