Luke 2:15. And it came to pass
when the angels went away from
them, the shepherds said one to
another, Let us now go even unto
Bethlehem, and see this thing
that is come to pass, which the
Lord hath made known unto us.
There was no thought of delay
with the shepherds. They said, let
us “now” go and see this thing
that is come to pass. “Now” is
God’s time. “Behold, Now is the
accepted time; behold Now is the
day of salvation. We live in one
eternal now. We cannot crawl und
er ‘‘now”, nor can we pass around
or climb over; we have no other
time but “now”. Tomorrow is the
fool’s word. Today is the time for
decision. Joshua said, “choose you
this day whom ye will serve.” Our
life is but a vapor which ap-
peareth for a little while, and then
it vanisheth away. How dare we,
then, waste our little Now. The
shepherds said, “let us now go
even unto Bethlehem”, They pur
posed in their hearts to go all the
way; there was no thought of stop
ping short of a full obedience.
Truly, a great “sight” was to be
found in Bethlehem. There was
a Savior, who was Christ the
Lord. Yes, there in a manger was
“God, manifest in the flesh”.
There was the Word that became
flesh and tabernacled among us.
We sing our carols and do our
homage to the Babe of Bethlehem.
Do we remember that that Babe
was the fulfillment of Isaiah’s
prophecy: “Unto us a Child is
born, unto us a Son is given; and
the government shall be upon his
shoulder”? That Babe was called
the Wonderful, Counsellor, The
Mighty God, The Everlasting
Father, The Prince of Peace. Do
