Christ-Mas You light Up My life!

Christ-Mas You light Up My life!

It’s Christmas, It’s Christmas, It’s Christmas
My brothers and sisters it is Christmas Day, let’s pray
And Invite friends, it’s time to love;

It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, the Savior was born
Come on brothers and sisters it’s the Lord’s Christmas
It’s Christmas, it’s Christmas, it’s Jesus is The Reason for this season.

Why Great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh. (1 Timothy 3:16)

In his book, The Reason Why, Robert Laidlaw tells of two friends who attended law school. One became a judge, while the other squandered his life, broke the law, and one day finished up in court. Sitting on the judge’s bench was his old friend, and everyone wondered what kind of sentence he would pass. To their surprise, he demanded the full penalty of the law. No sooner had he passed sentence, however, than he stepped from the seat of judgment, took off his robes, and walked over to the dock where his old friend stood. He put his arm around him and gently said, “Let it be recorded today that not only have I passed sentence upon him, but I will stand chargeable with all his debts.” In that moment, his judge became his redeemer.

As we celebrate holiday of Christmas let’s remember it is the story of the day God took off the robes of deity and put on the garments of humanity. He left a palace to come to a stable because He loved you.

Listen to the old poet: The Maker of the universe, As man for man was made a curse. The claims of law that he had made, Unto the uttermost He paid. Did you hear that? He paid! Had you been the only sinner who ever lived. He would have come. He would have died, and He would have paid the price just for you! ***

GREAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS! Amen 🙏

Have you received God’s gift of salvation Jesus was born to bring unto us?

If not, why don’t you please say this prayer with me to Receive Him as God’s gift of salvation by grace through Faith in his finished work done at cross of Calvary:🙏

Salvation is a gift from God, and comes through believing in Jesus and Jesus alone.

In John 14:6, the Bible tells us very clearly that Christ is the only way to God and eternal life, and in Romans 10:9–11, the Bible tells us how to be saved and have eternal life: Believe in our hearts that Jesus died for our sins and was raised from the grave, and confess with our mouths that He is our Lord and Savior.

To accept Christ into your life and be saved, please say this salvation prayer.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your love for me, for sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross for all my sins. His precious blood washes me clean. You raised Him from the dead. He’s alive today. And I thank You all my sins are forgiven. I’m righteous by the blood. I’m under God’s favor. And I thank You Father that surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life from this day forth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Once you have accepted Jesus into your life, your entire position in God’s kingdom changes—you are no longer a sinner, but a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), and an heir of God (Romans 8:17).

Today, as Jesus is in heaven, so are you in this world (1 John 4:17)! God loves you unconditionally and wants to bless you. He is forever on your side (Romans 8:31), and He has declared that He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

It is very important for you to continue hearing about Jesus and your new identity in Him, and to learn of all the blessings that He purchased at the cross for you to enjoy.

To help you begin your journey as a new Christian believer, a disciple follower of Lord Jesus, we encourage you to feel free to join our Gospel of Grace Baptist church if live nearby.
