Did You Know that Jesus is the Reason for the Season (#104)
Bible version used: NIV
Did You Know That Jesus is the Reason for the Season?
Most of us know that Christmas is about Jesus—or at least it used to be about Jesus. In these times, it can be hard to find Jesus in what we have made of Christmas. If you want to have a Christmas that can change your life, here are some things the Bible says about Jesus and about you:
Did you know? That you are separated from God by your sin and that you are unable to save yourself from the punishment you deserve?
Did you know? That Jesus is God’s Son and that God sent Him to take your punishment for sin, so you could be right with God?
Did you know? That no matter how good you are, the only way you can be saved is through Jesus?
Did you know? That after Jesus suffered and died for your sins, He rose from the grave and is now in heaven?
Did you know? That He is coming again—not as a little baby but as a conquering king?
Did you know? That you have to decide what to do about Jesus? Jesus said: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.” John 3:36
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
The Lord is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. II Peter 3:9
Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
To all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12
This is indeed what Christmas is all about. It is the most important event in the history of the world.
If you are ready to accept Jesus, here s a prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I believe that you died to pay the penalty for my sins. I repent of my sins and ask you to forgive me. Please come into my heart and help me to live for you. Amen.
