The Ultimate Gift of Christmas
Jesus brings people back into relationship with God.
By Pastor Steve York
Christmas is a very special time for millions of people. It is a time to gather together with family and friends. It is a time when people are so busy shopping; trying to find the right gifts for loved ones.
There is excitement in the air; but what about Jesus the Son of God? He should be the reason for our excitement because He is the Greatest Gift that all of mankind could ever receive. He came to set men free from the bondage and penalty of sin.
He came to bring us back into right relationship with God. He came to take our place as a substitute for our sins. He and He alone was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Because of Jesus, we can have eternal life, and spend all eternity in heaven with Him.
There is something that we must do to receive this gift. In the New Testament, in the book of Romans, it states…
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Are you ready to receive Jesus Christ into your heart? What a wonderful way to spend this Christmas Season.
