“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” Luke 2:11-12
Think about the angel's announcement, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”What does that mean for us?
Jesus came to save us from a dark past. Many people have suffered over the bad things they have done in the past. All the terrible things we have done are no match for Jesus' blood that He shed for us on the cross.
The moment we confess those sins to God and repent of them, we are forgiven.
“And a voice spoke to him again the second time, “What God has cleansed you must not call common.” Acts 10:15
Many people are surviving and not living this year. Jesus came at Christmas not to fill our empty stockings but to fill our empty lives. God has a purpose and a plan for each of us.
We need to Come to Him. Surrender to Him. Let Him lead us.
Jesus wants to bring us joy and peace, regardless of our circumstances. He wants to use our lives to make a difference in others, which will last for eternity.
It makes our lives worth living to know that every day is an exciting opportunity to touch another person with the love, joy, and peace of Jesus.
Everyone without God is without hope. No one comes to God without Jesus.
Now Jesus has come, and we can know Him personally, and we can be assured of His presence and provision while we live in heaven when we die.
What a future is in store for the child of God!
“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
Do not let the enemy steal from you and your Christmas any longer!
Jesus has come, and He has come for you! Receive the Good News and rejoice in the truth!
Are you filled with wonder, joy, and praise, or has the enemy taken those things from you this holiday season? There is still time to get them back!
Will you decide to be filled with joy and wonder, and praise this Christmas?Do you need Prayer? We are here to pray with you.
“Heavenly Father, I am thankful I have heard the Good News of Jesus’ birth, and I have invited Him to be my Lord and Savior. In this makes this season a real time of rejoicing. To know the real reason of this day is precious as it is life changing. To know Jesus’ as Lord is being able to spend eternity with the One that gave His life for even me. Thank You, Father, for Jesus, as today we celebrate His birth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
