At the Advent season, there is a question that presents itself and demands an answer. It is a question that must be answered by every age and generation. The question is this: “Who is this Child?” Who is this Child whose birth gave rise to a holiday that is celebrated all over the world? Who is this Child that has sparked so much controversy and debate? Who is this Child that some faithfully adhere to and others despise? We don’t have to go far to find the answer.
Everything turns on who we declare this Child to be. There is no middle ground. We cannot simply be indifferent to this Child’s identity. He is either a child like any other, or He is the appointed King of God’s Kingdom. To simply disregard His is a fatal error. To fall before Him in adoring faith and worship is to find eternal life. Those who embrace Him as King are those who will find themselves living in the Reign.
