You have gone through a marriage or two, a job or two, a house or two. And you are wondering on the Christmas Eve if there is something else out there. You are shopping for a Savior. I am going to challenge you to do something if you are in this position. I am going to challenge you to do what the Wise Men did years ago. The Wise Men were shopping. They were prosperous, brilliant, people well versed in the natural sciences.
The Bible says they shopped and shopped and shopped until as Matthew 2:11 says, “they saw the child with his mother Mary and they bowed down and worshipped him.” They shopped until they dropped. The Bible also says in Philippians 2:10-11, “At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth.” So I ask you, there is not a better time in the world to put down the other knee and release your white knuckle grip on the cart. When you do that and allow Jesus to push your cart, that is when you have true position. You are adopted into the family of God. The word adoption in the Jewish culture is a strong word.
You see, back in Jesus’ day, you could disown a biological child. But if you adopted a child, you could not disown them. We have a change to be adopted into the family of God. Talk about position and influence. How about possessions? Once we come to know Christ and bow the knee to Him, we have true possessions. We can tap into His reservoir of strength when the rogue winds blow and the difficult days hit. Talk about adventure.© Copyright admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Jr
