CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS
Main Text- .” Luke 2:10-12: “I bring you good tidings of great joy…. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord…. You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger ”
Isaiah 9:6-7: For Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.
Christmas means different things to different people. Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, eating chicken with family and friends, and shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass us in the streets? Is this really Christmas? For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow. They don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends.
Many are saddened at Christmas time when they think of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Eating chicken may be only a wish and not a reality for some, but its far more than that.
Jesus was born so one day the price could be paid for the things we have done that are wrong. The Bible says that all have sinned. We are all born with a sin nature. We do things that do not please God. Through the sins of Adam and Eve, we have all inherited that sin nature.
We need to have that removed. The only way is through Jesus. Jesus came so He could die on the cross for ALL of our sins. If we believe that Jesus died for our sins, we can ask Him to come into our hearts and forgive us. Then, we are clean and made whole.
We can know that heaven is a place where we can go to when this life is over, that’s the real deal. Look at Christmas in a new way this year.
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! REJOICE!
Prayer: Father help me to really see the sacrifice of Christ this Christmas.
