The Day Which Divides Time

Whether you say B.C. and A.D. or BCE and CE, the terms refer to the same thing – human history before the birth of Christ and human history after the birth of Christ. And it is right being so – God coming to this earth as a human being is and always will be the most spectacular event in time. But the message of Christmas is not just meant to be a divider of historical eras, it is the greatest invitation ever offered to each and every person. Christmas is God himself coming to us as individuals and saying,

You aren’t the way you were made to be. I can change that.
Acknowledge your sin. Receive my forgiveness.
Come into my family.
Experience my blessings.
Know that you will live with me for eternity, without pain, without fighting, without self-centeredness, without death.

That’s the magnificent message of the manger.
