When the set time had fully come, God sent His Son. (Galatians 4:4)
What does it mean, “when the time had fully come?”
Chris Tiegreen explains it this way. “In [God’s] plan, a nation was cultivated, a law was given, human nature was exposed, prophets spoke, and creation waited. Then the Savior came. We were prepared for salvation, and we now celebrate the fullness of time.”
Of the Savior, Matthew 1:23 says, They will call Him Emmanuel which means, “God with us.”
Bob McGee put His name to song:
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, His name is called Emmanuel;
God with us, revealed in us; His name is called Emmanuel.
In thankfulness for the wonder of it all.
