The Significance of It All


Hey everyone,

Christmas is just around the corner and I think that we should spend some time meditating on the real reason for the season, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was God's gift to humanity. Sin had once separated man from God. But Jesus Christ was made the bridge by which we can be reconciled with God. Long before his birth, the prophet Isaiah foretold that a baby would be born of a virgin and that His name would be Immanuel.

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel." Isaiah 7:14

As predicted, Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. As also predicted in Isaiah 53, Jesus suffered (and died) so that we may be reconciled with God. All we have to do is accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our lives.

What better way to celebrate Jesus Christ this year than to make Him the Savior of our lives? After all, it's a free gift that He has handed to us, that is salvation from sin. All we have to do is accept it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
