When I think of Christmas, I think of Jesus’ birth. Jesus gave His life to save mine, so I can celebrate Christmas every day!
“God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him, will never die but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Jesus was sent by God the Father to become fully human and still remain fully God. Jesus had to be fully God in order to live a perfect, sinless life. Jesus had to be fully man in order to die in our place. He had to be fully God in order to pay the penalty for our sins.
Even the Jewish leaders knew enough to ask, “Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Mark 2:7
The Bible teaches us that Jesus is God.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
The Word is referring to Jesus, the Son of God. I know Jesus is God because He is the same day after day. Personally I like change but not when it comes to the God of the Universe.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Jesus is the one true God. He is my God and deserves my worship, praise, love, and obedience.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.” John 8:58
The best gift I can give Jesus is me. The best gift I can give my family is Jesus.
