A bit of Encouragement

Why celebrate Jesus one may ask? Well, I came across a passage that has been an encouragement to me. Jesus, the son of God, humbled himself and became human just so that we may be saved. Because of Jesus' ultimate sacrifice, his death on the cross for our sins, we have been reconciled with God. That is the greatest thing that ever could be done for us. Jesus' death allows us to be reconciled with God, all we have to do is confess our sins to Him, believing that He can save us. Forgiven and blameless before God, we can now fellowship with God and have achieved for ourselves eternal life with God in heaven. How amazing is that!

Colossians 1:15-22 (NIV)
The Supremacy of Christ

15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
21Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[a] your evil behavior. 22But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—
