“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
The gift of baby Jesus was “world altering”, “humanity changing”, and have impacted those before and after the life of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Gift of Forgiveness
“Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we’re a free people—free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free!
He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth.
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.”
We must acknowledge and accept the gift of Jesus
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:8-9
This is the miraculous gift that is waiting to be opened under the “Christmas” tree!!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16
So would you open the gift of Jesus this Christmas, receive forgiveness, and gain eternal life, a life full of joy and contentment. No pain, no suffering, no ailments or disease? I did! I just called out to him—-he is waiting for you to seek him too!
