This Christmas season, when things are anything but normal, there is one thing we can count on that has not changed. The same Jesus who came from Heaven as a babe and was born to a virgin, remained sinless throughout His life, died an agonizing death on the cross to redeem us for our sins. He than rose again in three days and now sits on the right hand of God the Father. That same Jesus Christ has NOT changed. He is still beckoning every person to call on Him for salvation.
Though much of the world has rejected Him and continue to reject Him, He is still compassionate towards them. He still longs that no one should perish but that ALL may be saved. He continues to make intercessions daily for us, His church. He is still a Savior of love and compassion. A Savior who is soon to appear for His bride, the Church. While there is still time and the window of opportunity is still open, we must share the good news with those that need to hear it. Soon the window will close and the future will be bleak for any who have missed the day of salvation.
So this Christmas, when so many things are unsure let’s focus on giving the best most secure gift ever? The gift that will transform broken lives and give people an eternity they will enjoy forever! A gift that will give them peace among this world’s chaos. This Christmas let each of us pray for and share the good news with those who need to hear, before night comes and the opportunity is gone.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:16,17
