Commentary By: Gordon King
Today is the day that we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, into this world.
Many say that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th, or that Christmas is just a pagan holiday.
No one really knows the day that Jesus was born. And for many, Christmas is merely a time to celebrate, a time to honor traditions, a time to buy and sell, a time to give and receive. And just like the “rainbow” has been stolen and used for secular purposes, Christmas also has been stolen and used for pagan purposes. Many things of God have been misused and abused by the world, Christmas being only one of them.
However, for many it is a time that signifies the birth of the Savior of the world into this world. All of us have a birthday, and most of us celebrate that day with others. So why not celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior into this world also and even more so?
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world; it is by Him and through Him that all things were created and held together. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, He is the only way to eternal life with God, there is no other! If there were then His crucifixion and death on the cross was in vain and pointless.
The fact is that Jesus Christ did die on the cross, that He did take all of our sins upon Himself in order that we may have eternal life with Him in glory! The fact is that there is no other way to heaven except by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, it’s the only way!
Jesus Christ was born into this world in order to die in our place, that we may have eternal life! He came to bear the sins of the world so that the world may have life and have it eternally!
Let us celebrate the birth of God into this world as our Lord and Savior. Let us praise His holy name and worship Him and no other. Let us bow down at the footstool of our Father in heaven and give Him thanks for the sacrifice that He made for us. Let us love Jesus Christ as much as He loves us!
It’s never too late to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior until it is, and you never know exactly when your time is up.
God bless my friends! Maranatha! And Merry Christmas!!!
