It’s never too late to repent and turn your life over to God! As long as you have breath and there is a today, then there is an opportunity.
And it doesn’t matter how old or young you may be; or how much sinfulness you have committed – you can come to the Lord today.
The only ones to show up around the birth of Jesus were shepherds. Perhaps there may have been a few others – a midwife or a relative of Joseph or Mary that was living in Bethlehem at the time.
But certainly there was no pomp and circumstance at His arrival that drew masses of followers.
In fact, it was eight days after His birth when Joseph and Mary took Jesus for ritual circumcision, according to the Law.
While there two people came to them unannounced.
First, an elderly man named Simeon.
And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, [Simeon] took Him up in his arms and blessed God… Luke 2:27-28
Then an eighty-four year old woman named Anna also walked up to them.
And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. Luke 2:38
So just because you may be late for the birth doesn’t mean it’s too late to meet Jesus. After all, most of the disciples won’t meet Him until He’s thirty years old.
So come meet Him today.
Abba, I pray for those that need to meet Jesus today. YES&AMEN
