This is the phrase that will help us see how blessed we are as God’s Children! We are never to BE separated from God, but be saved through his begotten son—Our Savior, Our King, Our Redeemer, Our Liberator, and Our Protector! It is THE GIFT we can be thankful for the rest of our lives, that leads us to HIM and to the path of righteousness.
He Planned It From The Beginning
As Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, God revealed that He will save His mankind. Our Almighty Father, then made a way to bring us to our salvation. In Matthew 1:21 “You shall call his name Jesus; for he will save his people from their sins.” God named the child, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary AND declared Him to the world as our Savior AND our Father has given us salvation.
He Kept His Promise
Because of His promise, we are saved. Where we may fail, God will not. While we may forget, God will never. He is forever faithful, as in Genesis 19 to Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah, AND to Noah as he created the ark to save his family and the animals from the flood. There is story after story written for us through His Written Gift BUT none as beautiful as the Salvation Story of You. You are saved today because Christ alone kept His promise and continues to today.
Jesus Is The Bearer Of God’s Children
God’s presence is mighty, powerful, and no man can stand! Exodus 33:20 “And he said, ‘You cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.” Then God promised the first anticipation for Christmas in Isaiah 40:5 “The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,” and in Hebrews 1:3 “He is the radiance of the glory of God, and the exact imprint of his nature.” Jesus became the founder of a better relationship between God and His people, helping mankind create a stronger, better relationship with the Lord. Jesus is EMMANUEL—GOD with us: GOD incarnate—GOD in the flesh.
Christmas Is All We Need
At Christmas we celebrate our infinite God who became man—taking on the limitations of time and space. Giving miracles and hope for us His children, lost and hopeless by sharing the Word of His Father bringing us closer to HIM. He was a man, yet a GOD, he was a savior, yet a KING! It is during Christmas that this glory of salvation was delivered and recognized in the world and keeps us alive until now. It was Jesus who sacrificed His life for us to live. It was and it is JESUS who is THE GIFT OF CHRISTMAS and HE IS THE GIFT GIVEN TO ALL THAT ALL OF US TRULY NEED!
