“Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.”So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” John 8:56-58
As Christmas approaches all too quickly, it’s easy to picture Jesus as that babe in a manger in a little town called Bethlehem. Yet His birth did not define His beginning. He is God. He always has been and He always will be.
Because Jesus is the central interwoven theme throughout the Word of God, it is not surprising to find His presence very vividly presented in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. For the next two weeks we are going to pull back the curtains of the Old Testament accounts of Christ and bask in the glorious ways in which He has chosen to make Himself known to us!
We truly serve a wonderful God who makes Himself known in ways we have yet to discover!
