"Jesus is Here"Stuart JonesGraduation day is a big deal for most people. It really does not matter what you are graduating from; graduation day is a big deal. Maybe it is high school, or college, or boot camp--you look forward to graduation day. For those who are still waiting for graduation day to come, let me tell you a little secret – it is not a big deal. It is just another day. The better part is coming. The real change has yet to happen. Doors will open, opportunities will come, and that graduation will begin to make a real difference in your life. But on that day you graduate, you can’t see or anticipate the impact. The “bigger deal” of graduation isn’t the ceremony of that one day, it is completing the program. On the day Jesus was born only a few, the shepherds and the Magi, knew the significance of this birth. For most people, it was just another day. The change in everyone’s life had arrived…but they did not know it or see it. How big was the birth that day? In John 11:25-26 Jesus says to Martha, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” What was the magnitude of this gift, of this birth unknown to most at the time? The answer is in Romans 8:32, “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – now will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
