Day 10 – Journey to the Cross – Pastor Kevin Lautar

Hello First Family!


Happy Monday! I am thankful for the time we shared in the Lord’s house this weekend. We kick off this week’s Code words with the Code word Sign”.

We are inundated with signs each and every day. We have become immune to the presence of most of the signs and don’t give them very much thought. We come across street signs telling us which way to go or not and inform us as to where we are in any given moment. We drive by  business signs alerting us to the businesses that are available to us. We see construction signs, detour signs and real estate signs giving us information that we soon forget. O.S. Hawkins uses the Code word Sign to remind us of another type of sign that we sometimes under value In our Christian faith. The sign that he refers to is the sign of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Today’s focus verse is from Isaiah 7:14, which states, “The LORD Himself will give you a sign; behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” The Hebrew word for sign is defined  as a signal, a distinguishing mark, a remembrance, a token or proof. The virgin birth of Christ is a distinguishing event that would serve as proof of His identity as the Messiah, God’s Son. We cannot journey to the cross without the virgin birth.

Today as you go about your way, and ignore most of the signs around you, take a minute and reflect on the sign that God gave you and me, to help us identify and know His Son. We serve such a good God! He desires that we know the Way, in which we are going, by giving us a sign to follow. Don’t ignore the Sign. See ya tomorrow on our Journey to the Cross!
