Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus the Savior of the world. But why did the world need A Savior? Why did the world need Jesus?
Go back to the beginning of time; God made Adam & Eve and put them in the garden of Eden. But they sinned…they disobeyed God when they ate of the fruit. Because of that God said, “From dust you came and to dust you will return.” Since then, every person that has come into the world does so as a sinner. We are all descendants of Adam.
Man is a spiritual being and can only find meaning in life when man has a relationship with his creator. But sin separated man from God. Man tried to fix his problem. Man tried to be a god person…man made sacrifices..man gave to worthy causes but the problem was still there. Man couldn’t fix his sin problem so, man was doomed to eternity separated from God in hell.
God knew that man had to have a perfect Savior. Nothing else would work. God knew the only solution was to send His Son to the earth. So, God caused a virgin to conceive and and she gave birth to Jesus the Son of God.
If Jesus does not come into this world, man has no Savior and man has no hopeless. But Jesus did come and Jesus died on the cross for man’s sins. Today, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, Savior of the world!
The family gatherings, the gifts…it’s all good but, you can have Christmas without any of that. It’s the birth of the Savior of the world!
Jesus loves us folks. Our past does not matter. Jesus loves us. No one has ever loved us like Jesus. Today, give thanks to the Lord for the birth of the Savior of the world!
