Today most of the world is celebrating the birth of Jesus. I’m not going to get into the theology of the most correct dates of His birth, nor the secular influences that have crept in over the years. Rather, I want to remind us of:
His Birth – His Death –
His Resurrection – His Eternal Life
This is the word picture from Jesus for us! It is what our life is like, in Him.
In looking over the names associated with Jesus, it gives us the picture of Him. They are too numerous to mention…listen in to the sermon to get the whole picture, and you can see…with a resume like that…He is COMPLETE!!
Meditate on those names. This is the God that we serve. Don’t just think of Him as a babe in a manger…that was His gift to us…He humbled Himself to save us!
His birth is our salvation!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
He didn’t START as a baby…that was a planned event as part of His eternal existence
In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.
We must live it, show it, and teach it…that’s our part.
For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority.
It’s JESUS – JESUS – JESUS.
So as you celebrate, for those who do, don’t lose sight of JESUS. For it’s not religion, traditions, or celebrations that are important…but that He has come that you may be restored to God the Father, once and for all.
God bless you.
