December 2

Why do we celebrate the birth of Jesus when he has always existed? John 1:1-2 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.” There is something special about our eternal God, walking the earth in the flesh, living among us as a human, and experiencing life as we do. Him living and being, showing us that he understands our emotions of joy and pain, and also experiencing physical pain, which gives him credibility, especially when he laid down his life for us. And then, topping that off by lifting himself up out of the grave! In doing all of this, he never sinned. As humans, we know how hard it is not to sin, but, to have Jesus show us how sinful we are and how separated we are from our Holy God, and to offer to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, is beyond incredible. If you don’t know Jesus, now is the time. You do not want to be found outside of God’s will when he calls his followers to be with him. Imagine not having the Christians around as a moral compass by sharing the truth; chaos would ensue, and you would be in the midst of it. Turn your life over to Jesus today, and let him show you the way; you cannot get into heaven without him!

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
