Christmas is the time that we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ ; whether He was born on December 25 or not, we celebrate that He came because if He had not been born, Our salvation would not have been fulfilled as there is no salvation in any other but Him alone (Acts 4:12).
Just us by one man sin entered into the world, through Jesus Christ the grace of God has abounded unto many because His main reason of coming was to nullify the offence of the one man Adam.
This is why Jesus came as the Light of the world, meaning that all who do not follow Him are still walking in darkness (John 6:12). It is those that have accepted Jesus Christ that walk in light because it is after accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior that we become children of the light. Simeon the prophet referred to Jesus as the Salvation and a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of Israel (Luke 2:32).
Take not that this did not live anyone out; we are all included as long as we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior.
Many up to now still do not realize the reason why we need to accept Jesus as our Savior and are still bound by religion. Belonging to a particular denomination or following a particular preacher will not save anyone but will only attract darkness.
The Kingdom of God was likened unto the ten virgins who took their lamps to meet with the bridegroom. When the Bridegroom came, the foolish ones had no light as they could not light the lamps because they did not have enough oil. They thought they way saved yet they were religious. These are people that are in church but because they have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, they have no light in them but darkness.
These are people that believe in worshipping pastors as if the pastor came to die on then Cross the way Jesus did. Respect the pastor but they should not be getting the Glory that belongs to God alone.
As we are celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, let us use this time to search our hearts and make sure that we truly have Him as a personal Savior. This is what we celebrate about on this day.
No matter what date He was born, He was still born and we are saved because of what He did on the cross which would not have been accomplished if He did not come. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the Government shall be upon His shoulder” (Isaiah 9:6).Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
