On Christmas



He was born into poverty.

He served others, lived a simple life, and spoke out against legalism (Mark 12:41-44, Matthew 23:23, Mark 7:5-8).

He loved others whether or not they loved him (Romans 5:8).

He always gave glory to the Father (John 6:38).

He prayed forgiveness for those who tortured him at his death (Luke 23:34).



He made it clear he was the only way to God (John 14:6).

He instructed other believers to demonstrate love (John 13:35).

He died a treacherous death on a  Roman cross so that every being who chose him would be called a child of God (John 1:12).

His will is that we call him Lord: believing in his Sonship, professing faith that his death & resurrection is the only sacrifice for our sin (Romans 10:9, John 3:16).

May the season of celebrating the birth of the world’s Savior be a renewing time for you and your family. And may you seek Him with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13).
