“I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior–yes, the Messiah, the Lord–has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!” Luke 2:10-11
I pray the Christmas service you attend this year is filled with awe and wonder of Christ’s birth, and filled with joy, love, and hope. I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get through Silent Night at Crossroads without choking up and shedding tears. The emotion of genuine gratitude takes over, especially as I share Christ’s birth with my family and church family, and my Celebrate Recovery family.
Jesus Christ’s birth over 2,000 years ago changed the world forever. His birth plays out in our lives and in our hearts every day, ever reminding us that God is a personal God. God’s love for us sent His Son into this messy world to save us, love us, restore us, and to be in a forever relationship with Him. What are we to do in return? Serve others as Jesus has served us. Carry the good news to all people, that our Lord and Savior is real, that by the Cross our sins are forgiven and we have eternal life with Him by the power of the resurrection.
Our life with Jesus starts by saying “yes” to Jesus:
“If you declare with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10: 9-10
Make everyday a Christmas day by sharing your gifts with others.
