Perfect Timing

God's timing is perfect.
The coming of Christ was at the right time.
When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son. —Galatians 4:4

Alexander the Great had conquered most of the known world, bringing with him the Greek culture and language. The Roman Empire then expanded the territory under the unifying influence of the culture and language of the Greeks. 

It was under the Roman rule that the crucifixion took place, where the blood of Christ was shed for us. It was under the Roman rule that conditions were made ready for the spread of the gospel across three continents: good roads, free passages, and a unifying language. 

God’s timing is perfect in everything. In His infinite wisdom and power, He works behind the scene to prepare all things for just the right time.

Wait well and trust Him. He knows when the fullness of time has come. Learn the disciplines of patience.
