“In the fullness of time” directly spoken of in scriptures is often understood in reference to the Pax Romana. And the building of roads that set up and prepared the propagation and spread of the Gospel.
This scene in time made it perfect for the Incarnation of the Lord to take place. This perfect timing of the coming of Christ was a clear part of God’s salvific work.
When Christ came, He interrupted the Giant religious Decline and darkness that had reached a terrible point of crisis in human civilization. This is what Christ does in our lives today. Often when we reach a point from which it seems there is no return; “in the fullness of time,” Christ comes into our lives. And makes a way where it seems that there was no way.
Praise God that in that dark day when it seemed that there was no hope for me. “In the fullness of time,” Christ came and rescued me from my darkness and depravity. His Redemption and regeneration in my life made it possible for me, to experience the joy that I have today in knowing Him.
May you experience this same regeneration in your life. As you allow Christ to come in the fullness of your time and give you His presence and peace.
“But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”
Galatians 4:4&5 KJV
