“At just the right time … Christ died for the ungodly.”  (Romans 5:6)

In the midst of the busyness and chaos of human history, God, at certain times, steps in “at just the right time.”

Christmas 2000 years ago was one of those moments. Life was going along normally when suddenly angels sang, a star appeared, a baby was born. Who could have guessed it would have been then, in this way that God showed up?

And so it is with our lives … things are going along normally, when suddenly God steps in and everything is changed. Most of us can point to a time when we sensed God showed up in our lives – as unexpectedly as the angels appearing to the shepherds in Bethlehem.

But not every time is dramatic. Elijah heard God as a “still, small voice.” This Christmas let’s have our eyes open in faith to see God showing up in whatever way He chooses – perhaps dramatically, perhaps in quiet small ways. But let’s be assured, God is here.
