Turn to God for Salvation      

Isaiah 45 22 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 45:22

Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

 

Turn to God and be saved.  You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself.  Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19) God loves you so much He made a way for you to be reconciled with Him when He sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins. Turn to God for salvation before it’s too late.

Born in Bethlehem

Luke 2 4-6

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 2:4-6

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth.

 

The birth of Jesus in Bethlehem is the fulfillment of the prophecy found in Micah 5:2. “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”  Bethlehem was a small city in Judah near Jerusalem. King David had been born in Bethlehem and Jesus, who came from the lineage of King David and whose lineage goes all the way back to Adam, was also born there.  Jesus is referred to as the King of the Jews from the beginning of his life to the end and it is no coincidence that Bethlehem’s literal meaning is “The House of Bread” because Jesus is the “Bread of Life”.  You see, every detail about the birth of Jesus, including being born in Bethlehem, was all part of God’s divine plan for our salvation.

O Holy Night

John 3 17

 

Verse of the Day:  John 3:17

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 

The star was shining brightly in the City of David on the night the Savior was born. God sent His only Son to offer the grace of the gospel, eternal life and salvation, that the world through Him might be saved.  The birth of Christ, the Messiah, was proclaimed by angels to the shepherds who went to Bethlehem and found Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus lying in the manger. Take a moment to reflect on the greatest gift ever given, Jesus Christ our Savior.

Joy to the World, the Lord is Come!

Luke 2 10-11

 

Verse of the Day: Luke 2:10-11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

 

Over 2000 years ago an angel appeared to the shepherds bringing good news. God had a divine plan for our salvation and Jesus was born to lay down His life for all people. The promised Messiah, the Savior had been born.  The good news of the Savior’s birth is the reason for great joy and celebration!

Gifts from Above

James 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

God is good and every gift from Him is good and perfect. Think about all the good in your life, your job, your home, your family, it’s all a gift from God.  Think about the spiritual gifts you’ve been given; they too are a gift from God. Now think about the greatest gift of all, the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, it all comes from our heavenly Father.  As we go through this holiday season let’s not forget what it’s really about and remember to be grateful for all the gifts from our Father above.
