This Christmas season across the world many celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, even those who paid little attention to the reason Jesus came to earth. He was and is the manifestation of God the Father’s great love for the world, so that the story of redemption could be revealed in Christ Jesus.
I marvel that any man could turn his back on such love from a wonderful God!!! “How can it be???? How can anyone who hears of the Virgin Birth, the Heavenly Host declaring the ‘peace on earth’ and ‘goodwill toward men’ and shepherds being witnesses of it, not respond in wonder and adoration???” Every year the world acknowledges that Christ Jesus came to earth, though many deny his divinity and purpose in coming.
Let us rejoice that Jesus the Saviour came to redeem those who put their trust in Him, believing in His sacrifice on Calvary’s tree, taking our sins and punishment into His own body, on the 3rd day rising from the dead, taken up into heaven to sit at the right hand of God!!! Let us rejoice in a wonderful Saviour this Christmas and remember all those wonderful works He did for us! God bless you, have a Merry Christmas!!!
