“ And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.“–John 1:14
Man has always had problems concerning what is important and what’s not. Considering that we live in a fallen world that is to be expected. We tend to get things upside down. I thought of that recently when I read this article from “Turning Point”:
“A man-on-the-street poll to determine the most important event in world history would reveal a variety of answers. But for Christians, the answer is clear: the coming of God to earth. To consider the importance of that event is to invite wonder and awe. And there is no shortage of ways to consider its importance for us.
For example, Christ lived in complete dependence on His Father and trusted in God’s will for His life (John 4:34; 5:30; 6:38; 8:28, 42). And even though He was tempted (Matthew 4:1-11) and at times suffered (Hebrews 5:8), He never questioned His experiences; He was always confident that the Father’s will for His life was perfect and His to obey. Christ proceeded from the Godhead to earth, bringing the will of God with Him. He was the will of God—and He never faltered. Now, the apostle Paul says, all who believe in Christ are in Him (Colossians 2:9-10). Therefore, as Christ fulfilled, and continues to fulfill, the will of God, so do we who live in Him by faith.”
Considering that, I feel compelled to ask, “Just how much like Jesus are you?”. Christmas serves to remind us that Christ came to reveal unto man what man ought to be as God created him to be. Honesty forces us to admit that we fail miserably. We all have sinned and are in need of a Savior. The coming of Christ involved far more than just providing us an example, He was born to die. He came to us that He might die for us. He sacrificed His life that we might have life. He is Faithful and True, so you can trust His purpose, plan, and promises! By accepting God’s gift, provided by Christ, this can be your greatest Christmas ever. Trust Him today.
