Advent Reading - Day 5

"Both of today's verses share a simple truth about the birth of Christ.  God sent Him at the perfect time!  It was the perfect time in history and God maneuvered events so that Jesus would be born in fulfillment of prophecy and His promises.."  -

Galatians 4:4-5

But when the fullness of
the time came, God sent
forth His Son, born of a
woman, bor under the
Law, so that He might
redeem those who were
under the Law, that we
might receive the adoption
as sons. (NASB)

Ephesians 1:9-12

And He made known to us
the mystery of His will
according to His good
pleasure, which He
purposed in Christ, to be
put into effect when the
times will have reached
their fulfillment - to bring
all things in heaven and on
earth together under one
head, even Christ.  In Him
we were also chosen,
having been predestined
according to the plan of
Him who works out
everything in conformity
with the purpose of His
will, in order that we, who
were the first to hope in
Christ, might be for the
praise of His glory. (NIV)
