Merry Christmas dear one!
Isaiah 9:6 says,
- For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His Name will be called WONDERFUL, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
JESUS came to give us abundant life. John 10:10 says,
- I came that you may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
JESUS was WONDERFUL in His death and resurrection. He was made sin for us! 2 Corinthians 5:21 says,
- God made Him (Jesus) Who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him, we might become the righteousness of God.
If JESUS was not born, none of this could have taken place. We would still be in our sins with no hope of redemption. JESUS took our place in hell so we do not have to go. He became what we were spiritually (dead in our sins) so that we might become what He is (righteous). By giving our lives to JESUS CHRIST, He takes our sins in exchange for His righteousness. He takes away every aspect of the curse on our lives – sin, sickness, oppression, lack, and poverty – and gives us His liberty, peace, health, wealth, and wisdom. Essentially, we exchange our weaknesses for His strengths. It is an agreement that The Father will never break! Ephesians 2:8-9 says,
- For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
John 3:16 says that God’s gift to the world is eternal life. We receive this (zoe) life when we are born again. And as believers, we not only have access to a glorious future in heaven, but we also have the right to an abundant life right here on earth. Receive Him now and begin to experience what this Christmas season is really all about!
LOVE IN MY WONDERFUL SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST,
