The Christmas Baby Jesus came on a mission. The reasons for it are not just important. They are the difference between life and death. Here are three of them.
The Christmas Baby Jesus Came To Establish A Kingdom
But it was not an earthly kingdom as most expected. And this was confusing and hard for people of that day to understand.
So there was no royal reception. Expensive pomp and splendor. Or red carpet treatment.
But rather, a humble birth in a common stable for animals. Welcomed on the scene by people in the lowest class of social standing. Yet, bathed in the glory of God.
A humble beginning. Followed by a ministry of service. And finally, sacrificial death and resurrection. That brought more confusion and misunderstanding.
Until finally, the truth of this kingdom broke through like the dawning light of a new day. And changed everything.
For the new kingdom that Jesus established is spiritual. And the throne he rules within the human heart.
The Christmas Baby Jesus Came To Rescue Us
It’s pretty obvious the world is broken. The Bible says it’s because we are broken. That we are sinners. Completely helpless to do anything about it. And therefore need a savior.
Jesus was God’s Son in human form. The only one able to live a perfect life. Who qualified as a perfect sacrifice. And could save us.
Although many people still reject this idea. Convinced that we can fix the world. And fix ourselves too. By simply trying harder. Tapping the power within us. Following the path of enlightenment to become our true, godlike self.
However, Jesus said, “no you can’t.” And claimed to be God’s exclusive solution. The only way out of sin. A gift you merely receive.
By believing. Acting on faith. And making a choice.
The Christmas Baby Jesus Came To Offer Grace
Grace is an eternal game changer. Granted by asking God’s forgiveness of sin. Received as a gift from Jesus.
And absolutely amazing! Why?
Because you can’t earn it. Don’t deserve it. Yet, God offers it in infinite measure.
Through the Christmas Baby Jesus, God’s grace pours over you like a fresh, cleansing shower. Washing away the old. Making you new. And reclaiming a spiritual relationship blocked by sin. The complete restoration as a child of God.
It’s here you discover that submission is not subjugation. Walking with Jesus the path of true freedom. And the joy the angels sang about that first Christmas day 2,000 years ago.
