Thought For Today: “From Eternity Into Time”
When Jesus came as that baby in a manger, He journeyed from eternity into time.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.” (John 1:1-2)
“When was the beginning?”
No matter how far back you go Jesus was before that, because the beginning is before time itself began. In the beginning the Word “was,” that is, Jesus existed before the beginning, meaning that He never really “began;” instead He always was.
Jesus was before time, and that’s because He’s the one who created it. And so, Jesus journeyed from eternity, where time isn’t measured, into time itself.
He came into time, our time, into our calendars, and into our days. He lived amongst us, which means He measured time as you and I. Can you imagine it? The Son of God who knew no time was now clothed in time.
Jesus came into time and into our history. He came not only from eternity into time but changed time. He reset the clocks of time. Before, calendars were marked by the reign of kings, “It was the third year of the reign” of this or that king.
But now our calendars are based upon the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords, it’s based on Jesus’ birth. And what’s so amazing is the whole world, even those religions that reject Jesus as Lord, set their calendars and clocks by His coming.
