Can you imagine if people of the Bible would have had facebook?
We’d see things like this-
Joseph: Relationship Status- It’s complicated
“Mary just checked in at the stable in Bethlehem with Joseph.”
Wiseman Status- “Camels packed and ready, gifts loaded, GPS (star) updated… ROAD TRIP!”
Shepherds Status- “Does anyone know what swaddling cloth is?”
“Gabriel just added photos to the album, ‘Do not be Afraid'”
Zechariah’s Status – ” At least I can still write”
Angel’s Status- “Had a great time hanging out with the shepherds tonight. Thanks everyone for making it so much fun!”
King Herod’s Status- “Anyone want to go with me to “worship” that new king?”
I’m certain Christ’s timing on earth was perfect. Not just because I think texting, facebook, twitter and more could provide so much false or irrelevant information that we would be overwhelmed trying to decipher what was truly being said and done by Christ, but because Galatians 4: 4-5 tells us it was the perfect time and perfect timing of his arrival.
I know that my enjoyment of technology, electricity, indoor plumbing, word processing, automobiles and other 21st Century perks makes the timing of my life perfect for my abilities… I trust that was the same for Christ’s life.
Something also tells me that had the nativity scene been in our day and age, Jesus’ birth announcement may have resembled this Christmas Card-
4 But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. 5 God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.[a]
