James 1:1-27 Bible in a Year:
AUDIO VERSIONGOD SENT JESUS TO REDEEM USEven before the events that shaped what Christmas means today for most of us, a bright star lit the night thousands of years ago, letting the world know that Jesus was born.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” James 1:17
When Jesus was born, shepherds came to Him, wise men brought Him gifts, and the earth rejoiced at Jesus’ birth. These people had no idea what Jesus would accomplish, but they were right in traveling to worship Him because His birth was the most remarkable event in human history.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Wise men and women today worship Jesus. Because whoever believes in Jesus shall have everlasting life. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving, and the Gift of Salvation is the only gift with life-changing effects.
As we approach the holiday season again this year, we face yet another opportunity to pause in the middle of all the excitement, decorations, and the pandemic, to consider again the origin of Christmas, the One whose birth we celebrate.
Remember the true meaning of why we celebrate during this time of year. We celebrate the baby Jesus’ birth and trust Him as our Savior today.
Thank God for sending His Son to be born, live a perfect life, die for our sins, and rise from the dead to give us eternal life through Him.
This is what Christmas is all about. Who will you share the Gift of Salvation with today? Do you need Prayer? We are here to pray with you.
“Heavenly Father, Thank You for the perfect gift of Your Son to die for our sins and then to be raised from the dead so we can have eternal life through Him. What a celebration to be able to share Jesus with the world. This world is hurting and needs so desperately to hear and know all the Love You have given. Thank You for the birth of Jesus for even me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
