January 1 – The Saviour Is Foretold


Welcome to a New Year of Devotions

Each devotion in the coming year will end with
what we hope will be a soul stirring and
thought-provoking question.
Prayerfully these devotions and questions
will lead you to a closer walk
with our Lord and Saviour
and a passion to reflect on His Word.

Again, thank you for reading these daily.
Please share this devotion
with your friends and family
and may God richly bless your year to come.

Here is your first Devotion of 2018

The Saviour Is Foretold

January 1
Daily Reading – Genesis 1 – 2 / Matthew 1

Matthew 1:21
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1:21 was a fulfillment of prophecies from hundreds of years in the past. Now think about that for a second. This prophecy was to be fulfilled in that year for Joseph. Never mind thousands of years of prophecy; this mattered to him that day.

        I can tell you for years, “Don’t put your hand in a flame.” It really won’t matter much until you’re faced with an open flame and a choice. The stories of Jesus won’t matter much either unless you realize you’re the one He came to save from their sin. The birth of Jesus still makes a difference today.

So how does the birth of Jesus matter to you today?
Or does it?
