Today is a good day to remember that not only did Jesus come once, but also that He is coming again.
“The angel went to a virgin promised in marriage to a descendant of David named Joseph. The virgin’s name was Mary. When the angel entered her home, he greeted her and said, ‘You are favored by the Lord! The Lord is with you.’ She was startled by what the angel said and tried to figure out what this greeting meant. The angel told her, ‘Don’t be afraid, Mary. You have found favor with God. You will become pregnant, give birth to a son, and name him Jesus. He will be a great man and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. Your son will be king of Jacob’s people forever, and his kingdom will never end’”
Why are we talking about Christmas in March? Well, because nine months from today is Christmas Eve. Nine months before Jesus was born, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her that she was going to have a baby, not just any baby. Her baby would be the Son of God and the King for forever.
That’s why today is a good day to remember that not only did Jesus come once, but also when the time is right, he is coming again. This time to take you home to heaven.
“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:12-14 NIV).
