🌟 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior.” “Unto you.” “For you.” He came for you. This is where Christmas becomes intensely personal.
It’s not enough to say abstractly that you believe Christ came. Millions of people say that and are still lost in their sins. It’s not enough to say that Christ came for someone else.
You can never be saved until you say, “Christ came for me. He died for me. He rose from the dead for me.”
He came for you. Do you believe that?
Christmas here. Families will gather around the tree to open their presents. Already some children are counting the hours until that glad moment arrives. When you receive your gifts this Christmas, what will you do? Will you not open them? What use is a gift that is never opened?
Two thousand years ago God sent a gift wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.
🎁 Jesus is God’s Christmas gift to you. But you will never experience Christmas joy until you personally receive God’s gift—the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christ came to save us from our sin-—but even his death on the cross cannot save us until we believe in him.
We have to remember…First, we are sinners, and second is, Jesus Christ is a great Savior!”
If you know those two things personally, you know the best news in the whole world, that a Savior has been born for you who is Christ the Lord!
Joy the world, the Lord is come ✨
