“For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”John 3:16 (NLT)
The Creator of the Universe lovingly formed you and me. He knew His plans for you before you were born, and they were good. God loves you and offers you life with Him forever. God offers freedom forever!
God’s goodness surpasses our understanding. He is holy and pure and cannot tolerate sin. Sin is disobeying God’s law and rebelling against Him.
We’ve all sinned and deserve separation from God forever.
But there’s hope. Sin doesn’t need to hold us in its grip. God made a way to approach Him and live in His presence forever. We can be freed from a life of hopelessness and guilt.
A sacrifice must pay for our sins. A perfect sacrifice. None of us is perfect. None of us can pay the price.
God made a way. God gave the ultimate gift.
God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world. Jesus shed His glory that He had in heaven with God. Jesus entered the world as a baby, born of a virgin, Luke 1:35.
Jesus taught the people about God. He healed the sick, performed miracles, and raised the dead.
Jesus never sinned, for He is God in the flesh … perfect and fully man … holy and fully God. Jesus and God the Father are one, John 10:30.
Jesus makes it possible for us to die to our sins and live for Him, for Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life.
Jesus took your sins and my sins upon Himself. He suffered the full wrath of God … the wrath that you and I deserve.
Jesus died and was buried.
Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead.
God loves you and gave His Son for you. He offers you life with Him forever – freedom forever!Tweet
Jesus now sits at the right hand of God speaking on our behalf.
This is the Christmas story. This is the story of the ultimate Gift … Jesus, our Savior … Life forever with Him.

Will you accept Him as your Lord today?
Pray this prayer
God, I have sinned and fallen short of Your glory. I can’t live up to Your standards, but I believe Your promise that You sent Your only begotten Son, Jesus, into the world. I can’t pay the price for my sins, but Jesus never sinned, and He came into the world to pay the price I couldn’t pay. Jesus, take my sins and cast them as far as the east is from the west. You gave up Your life on the cross for me. You rose from the dead on the third day and You’re speaking to the Father on my behalf. I turn from my sins and give You my life. I accept You, Jesus, as my Lord and Savior. I’m Yours, Jesus. Guide me and teach me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
If you prayed that prayer, the Bible tells us that the angels are rejoicing in heaven. We are rejoicing with them.
