Wednesday, December 12th: Nehemiah 10-11, Revelation 11:15-19 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Nehemiah 10-11, Revelation 11:15-19

Revelation 11:17 “We give thanks to you, Lord God, the Almighty, the one who is and who always was,

The concept of eternity is a hard one for us to grasp.  I find it easier to grasp the concept of eternity future (living forever with God in heaven), than it is to grasp the concept of eternity past.  Our finite minds have a hard time wrapping our head around that one.  How could God have always existed? It's an amazing mystery.  But it's a much more believable one than the idea that the universe just spontaneously burst into being, with all it's complexity and laws of gravity and whatnot.

God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit is and always was.

As our pastor said this past Sunday, one moment Jesus was enjoying heaven and the next He was on earth in the form of man, or actually in the form of a zygote.  God Almighty, Creator of the universe, willingly became a tiny speck of humanity in Mary's womb.  Mind boggling! And an apt thought with the Christmas season upon us.  How thankful I am that He willing came to earth that long ago Christmas day.  What a reason to celebrate!
