Galatians 4:4-5 (ESV)
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,  [5] to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Do you wonder what it would have been like if  Jesus had been born in a more technologically advanced age than the one He was born in? Do you ever wish that He had been on earth with the technologies that we now possess? Wouldn’t it have been great if Jesus had been born in a time when He could be interviewed on television, had His miracles permanently stored on You Tube, had a blog of divinely inspired teachings appearing on His web site every day? How great would it be to be able to hear His actual voice, see His actual face, watch His actual miracles and listen to Him simply destroy the “wisdom” of His enemies with His flawless arguments?

The fact is, that it would not have been better at all. The verse before us this morning says that Jesus came in “the fulness of time”. That means that it was at the exact right time. God knew what He was doing and when Jesus came to save us He did it better than any way we could have devised.

It is better that Jesus is not on You Tube, Twitter, and Facebook. We are called to live by faith and Jesus on line would not be conducive to that.

We should rejoice that we are not the ones who decide how God should do things. His plan to save people from their sins was worked out perfectly. Wherever we would change it would have made it worse. It is a very good thing that God did not consult with any creature when He formulated to save mankind before the world began. Salvation itself would be flawed otherwise and there would be no security at all. Our faith would be in doubt and so would God’s ability to save us.

Rejoice today that God does all things well and that no matter how we think He could have done some things better, we are just wrong about that and glad that He does not take His cues form us.

One thought on “Perfect Timing

  1. Amen & Amen. When I hear/read the foolishness of some of the professed atheists, its just so ridiculous that they think they have a better plan.

    Of course, when I point the finger at them, I have three pointing back at myself. How foolish we all are in our supposed plans. Like you said, we are wrong when we think He could have done things better. Why do I doubt Him so much, especially when I’ve seen how well He’s done things already. He doesn’t change, He promised. Oh Lord Jesus have mercy on me for my foolish thoughts and plans .

    Its becoming more and more joyful and peaceful to just step back and let our God Of The Universe work and do whatever He wants. Let Him be the potter and I, be just the clay, pliable and ready for whatever shape He sees fit. Why I fight that sometimes is beyond me, but here’s to fresh starts and clean slates.

    Thanks for posting.
