Know Jesus, Know Christmas

Isaiah 9:6
Without His birth there would be no cross.  Without the cross there would be no reconciliation.  Without reconciliation we would be lost.  Lost and wandering.  Searching and waiting for a Savior.  Just like the world was over 2000 years ago.

But blessed be to God that He loved me enough to send His Son...His one and only Son...into this cold, dark ,and dreary world.  He sent Him to save me.  To redeem me by the blood of His one and only Son.  Me.  And you.  And oh what a gift!  None other can EVER compare.

He is better than silver or gold.  Diamonds or mansions.  He is mine and I am His.  Forever.  Together.  He and I...and you too if you so desire.  He is waiting.  Waiting to be known for who He is.  What He can do for you.  He came to set us free.  Free from sin...fear...anxiety...worry...bondage...ourselves.

He came to this earth as a baby.  He left it as a man.  He will return to it as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and every knee shall bow and  tongue proclaim that He is...Have you accepted the ultimate gift?  I have and I am eagerly awaiting Him...

Amen! What a priceless gift - undeserved life. I have accepted that gift and I, too, am eagerly awaiting His return.
Merry Christmas!
