The Special of the Day… From the Orange Moon Cafe…
No one has ever trusted the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for doing so. And no one ever will.
"He that believeth on Him shall not be confounded" (I Peter 2:6).
"Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him" (Psalm 2:12).
"Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds" (Psalm 36:5).
On and on the Biblical affirmation of Divine faithfulness proceeds, declaring the God who "cannot lie," and whose every promise has either already been fulfilled, or is in the process thereof (Titus 1:2) The Lord Jesus Christ can be trusted for salvation. He can be trusted for the living of lives that honor God. He can be trusted in our blessings, our difficulties, and the everyday moments of life. He can be trusted "with all thine heart," and He can be trusted in this day and this moment, whatever the present may hold (Proverbs 3:5).
The Season proclaims such blessed truth. Among its many glories, Christmas illuminates a promise made and a promise fulfilled.
"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting" (Micah 5:2).
"And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem… And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:4; 10-12).
There is someone - Someone - to trust in this life and forevermore. Christmas promises nothing if it does not promise this, the perfect faithfulness of God. Every remembrance of a virgin and a manger, of shepherds and angels, of a star and a baby proclaim to our hearts that our Heavenly Father keeps His promises. He keeps them all. And so it can be said, it must be said, and it will be said by the faithful both now and forevermore. No one has ever trusted in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and been disappointed for doing so. And no one ever will.
"All the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us."
(II Corinthians 1:20)
