Jesus’ job is to save. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a saviour who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).
And suddenly there was with the angel the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men!”
Jesus didn’t come to judge us for our sins. He comes to save us from our sins (Matthew 1:20-21). But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.
My beloved, there is peace on earth because sinful man finally has peace with God, and we can have peace in our lives because God takes care of all our needs. God proved that He loves us by giving us the greatest gift of all Jesus.
(John 3:16-17) – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.
God loves every single person in the world. Not just the good people, giving up your own child for another person does not fit in the heart of a parent, God loves you so much that He is willing to give up His only son for you. How can God not be generous towards you if He is willing to give up Jesus for you? It doesn’t matter who you are: Believing in Jesus is an open invitation to the entire world. The day you believe in Jesus Christ, you will have everlasting life and you will never be lost. God’s word is the assurance. When we go to heaven, we will know joy that knows no end. You do not need to be a good person or do good work to be saved. You only need to believe. You are saved by grace. Jesus did not come to condemn you and tell you what you need to do better. He comes to save you.
(John 4:10) – Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, give me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.
Jesus spoke kindly to this Samaritan woman who had five husbands and was currently living with a man who was not her husband. People may have been calling her husband stealer and marriage breaker. Jesus is your greatest gift.
(Philippians 2:6-10) – Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond servant and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore, God has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth. My beloved, if you need to be saved from your sin, all what you need to do is to forgive all your enemies. Bless those who curse you and say dear Jesus please forgive me that I am a sinner, thank you for coming to this world and sacrificing your life for my sins, cleanse me with the precious blood you shed on the cross for my salvation. Please dear Saviour Jesus, save me from all my sins and come into my life, I accept you into my life as a Saviour and Lord. May God bless all of you! Merry Christmas!
