“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke. 2:11 (KJV)
Thank God for the gift of His only begotten Son that we are celebrating at this time. Take a minute to think of it, where would you be if Jesus didn’t come into this world? Can you imagine being alive in the Old Testament and not belonging to the Commonwealth of Israel? Can you imagine a life of complete alienation from God? Can you imagine what your life would have been like to be without God and without a hope of eternity? Let us even imagine you are a Jew, can you imagine all the rams you will be slaughtering on daily basis for the atonement of sins? Can you imagine what life would have been if Jesus did not come? Beloved, thank God He came. Indeed, He is the Ultimate Sacrifice.
Today, as men and women all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus, the interesting thing is that multiplied thousands are celebrating someone they do not even know. Can you imagine a birthday celebration without the celebrant? That is what multiplied thousands and indeed millions are doing; they are celebrating the season without knowing Him who is the reason for the season.
Do you know Him? If you don’t, don’t feel condemned, you can know Him today. Only pray this prayer: Almighty God, I come to you today, I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself, that is why I come. Jesus, I believe that you came to this world, you died and rose again and you paid the supreme price for my sin. I confess you today as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you for accepting me into your family. Thank you, Lord, for opening my eyes to see you today, in Jesus’ name.
If you prayed that prayer from your heart, welcome to the family of God. You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be glad to be in touch with you.
Remember: Jesus is the reason for the season. God bless you real good is my prayer.
