Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ the Son of God, and Saviour, which took place more than 2000 years ago.
We are now a day to Christmas and are busy with the preparations for the celebration, with some expectation for some gifts. Many associate Christmas with feasting, partying, and gifts, forgetting the real meaning.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16.
Have you received this priceless gift? If you have not yet received Him, you can do so now. ‘(…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)’ 2Cor.6:2. Paul pleaded with the Corinthians when he said, ‘…be ye reconciled to God’ (2Cor.5: 20). It is not enough to be religious or, to just go to church. Come back to God in obedience and service. Repent, and turn away from your sins. Confess Christ, and have a personal relationship with God through Him. That is what pleases God. Then can we be saved, and ensure a place with Him in eternity. Be sure to be ready should He come today, or death knocks or calls, at any time.
How to receive this Gift
Believe God’s Word that ‘All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God’. Romans 3:23. We all have sinned from Adam. God said through one of His prophets‘The soul that sinneth, it shall surely die’. (Ezekiel: 18 4c)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23). Hallelujah! That is why the whole world is rejoicing. Praise be to God! Remember that if someone buys you a gift, it is of no use to you until you claim and own it. Only then can you make use of it and enjoy. So it is with the gift of God. Accept Jesus as your Lord and saviour and you shall be saved.
Repent, and turn away from your sins. ‘If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ (1John 1: 9)
If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9.
The Benefits include:
Eternity with Christ; (John 3 16)
Power to become sons of God. John 1:12
Heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ. Romans 8:17
To reign with Christ in His soon coming kingdom. Daniel 2:44; Revelation 5:10, 17:12-13, 20:6.
Could there be a greater gift than this?
Why not receive this priceless gift TODAY, and you will be glad you did!
For the whole world rejoices because of the birth of the Son of God, and Saviour on earth.
