Loving Christ and loving one another!!

Why Was Jesus Born?

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12

As we approach Christmas, it's good to remember why Jesus was born. The Son of God did not come to establish a nostalgic, family-oriented, commercially successful holiday. The angel told Joseph: "(Mary) will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21).

Christmas began with a present from God to His sin-damaged world: "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Jesus came to earth to repair our sin-damaged lives.

A Prayer for This Week

Heavenly Father, I humbly come before You thanking You for my salvation through Your Son Jesus Christ. Help me to keep Christ in Christmas and fill me with your Holy Spirit so others can see You in my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
