REASON FOR THE SEASON

A chill was in the air but inside the shelter it was not felt. The smell of fresh hay filled the stable and in a small corner a flicker of light could be seen from an oil lamp. It cast a shadow on the wall, a shadow of a young Jewish woman singing to her newborn baby. At that moment in history even Mary did not realize the impact this child would have on the world. They named him JESUS and he was to grow into manhood to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life back to God. "Instead God has deliberately chosen to use ideas the world considers foolish and of little worth in order to shame those people considered by the world as wise and great, (I Cor. 1:27). There is no need for a gold plated calling card to view the Christ child, the future King of the world.
In the person of Jesus salvation is offered to all mankind in every walk of life, the rich or poor, black or White, sick or healthy, the educated or unlearned. Because of Jesus spiritual return to earth as the Comforter after his resurrection He gives us the indwelling power of Himself to live a victorious life. Through Him we have the power to overcome weaknesses and temptations that tear us down and cause us to sin. We are pardoned because of the bodily sacrifice of Jesus. "For God was in Christ restoring the world to Himself, no longer counting men's sins against them but blotting them out, (IICor. 5:19)."
God offers all of us salvation through Jesus because he loves us. What better gift can we receive from God then to be reconciled to Him once again through This special Christmas present He gave the world on Christmas morning 2,000 years ago.
Prayer: Father God, Jesus is the reason for the season. You offered the world forgiveness for sin that day in the lowly stable. All we need to do is admit were sinners and ask him to come into our lives. From then on we will have CHRISTmas every day.
Isaiah 7:14 " All right then, the Lord himself will choose the sign--a child shall be born to a virgin and she shall call him Emmanuel meaning ("God is with us").
