Gospel message of Christmas – 2
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men; 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came for testimony, to testify to the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. 9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. 10 I was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father – John. 1: 1-14
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
If today you could be before God and you were allowed to make a request. What gift would I ask for Him? You ask: Money? Health? A farm? A foreign car? A yacht? A beach house? A company? Power? Or you would ask: Life without disease? Life without pain and suffering? Life without death? Eternal life for you and your family?
God Himself redeemed us to Him. Our heavenly Father, kinda like only he can be rescued us from the world of darkness and brought us into his glorious light and wonderful company which, we only had free access by impressive mission love that boy of Nazareth, our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished for us all. This is the greatest gift that any human being could receive: Grace and eternal life that come only from Jesus. However, many still despise this great gift of love that our God has given to all mankind.
This Christmas we recognize and thank the Father, the striking gesture of love that our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished for us all. We honor him and glorify its regal name because He suffered, was humbled and gave His life to pay for our sins. The pain of the Lord Jesus we have been freed from the pain and find pleasure in the suffering of the Lord Jesus Christ we have been freed from sadness and find joy in the Lord's humiliation Jesus Christ we are liberated from humiliation and were exalted. The death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus we have been freed from death and won eternal life with Him. On this date so special, let's make a time of praise and worship in honor of this amazing rescue plan that he has for our lives, and especially we thank him for all that he is. Let's not make a effort to pay more attention only on what we want or what He can do for us all. We glorify Him for who He is. For his goodness. For their love and only because it is our God and Lord Almighty.
A hug, a Merry Christmas and a New Year richly blessed by the Lord.
