The birth of Jesus brought a new chapter in the life of Israel. They were to obey the law given by Moses. No wonder Father God had to find a new way. Every time I try and do things by instruction it does lots of things deep inside my Spirit.
When I get a new gadget I work out how to use it in my head, without reading the instructions. That is doing it my way.
Even when I do read the instructions I think there must be a better way than that to do things. I then adapt the instructions to suit myself. If I was an Israelite I would have changed all the laws to suit myself.
That’s exactly what they did.
Father God knew this and had a plan. The plan was to send his Son Jesus into the world. Jesus would teach them about living the way that Father God wanted us to live.
This Christmas I have a choice between doing things my way or His way. Father God was truly a God of new beginnings as he sent the Holy Spirit to help us in our time of need.
Today I choose to do it His way?
What way will you choose today?
