Waiting for a Sign
Sometimes, God’s people worried that God would forget to send the king, like in Isaiah 7:10-14. Yet God said there would be clear signs when the king arrived, so that nobody would miss it!
“The Lord spoke to Ahaz through me again. He said, “I am the Lord your God. Ask me to give you a miraculous sign. It can be anything in the deepest grave or in the highest heaven.”
But Ahaz said, “I won’t ask. I won’t put the Lord to the test.” Then I said, “Listen, you members of the royal family of Ahaz! Isn’t it enough for you to test the patience of men? Are you also going to test the patience of my God? The Lord himself will give you a miraculous sign. The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:10-14
Today, you can make your own sign to show that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birth. Even though this isn’t the same kind of sign as the ones God sent, it’s a reminder that God sent his family a king. Use whatever you have around the house to make a sign of your own announcing Jesus is here. Then hang it up somewhere (don’t forget to share with us a photo of your sign) for everyone to see.
