Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ, the most controversial figure in History was born in a manger. Though he came into the world in a humble way, to an everyday couple, that small baby was God’s answer to humanity’s desperate need for salvation.
Because of Adam’s transgression, we were separated from the life of God and cut off from the richness of His blessings. God, because of His great love for us, wrapped Himself in humanity and came to earth as a man — Jesus. He lived and dwelt among us and gave himself for us, all because of His great love for us. The wages of our sin was His life, and He gave it that we might receive salvation through Him.
John 3:16, illustrates the love of the father towards us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. That whoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
Jesus became the bridge between mankind and God so that we can have a relationship with the Father. He is our Savior, our redeemer, our deliverer, our healer, and our friend.
Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. He removed, (took away) our weaknesses, our sickness, our pain, so that we can walk in total freedom.
We don’t have to earn His love and salvation, its’ a free gift available to all who will believe. All we have to do is receive it by faith. “If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him (Jesus) from the dead, you shall be saved.” Romans 10:9-10
