The Importance of Presence

Christmas is coming! As December 25 looms large, it is also a moment to consider God’s pattern of preparation for this moment. And Matthew helps us do this. In four simple references to parts of the Old Testament, Matthew helps us understand that this moment is the culmination, the climax, of the pattern of God’s preparation for His promises to be fulfilled. This fulfilment is not that of the predictive nature, but of a pattern of actions – a pattern that is both similar to what happens at the birth of Jesus – but that birth is bigger and more amazing than anything else!

Scripture References: Matthew 1:18-25, Psalms 45:1-17, Isaiah 7:1-20
