We celebrate today the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!  In Jesus, God’s unfathomable love was sent to us in a person.  In Jesus, we see the value that God places upon each one of us, and the length He would go to come to our rescue.  In that tiny manger in Bethlehem’s stable God wrapped up His love for each of us to receive and embrace.  The Bible is very clear in telling us that Jesus Christ is the perfect God-man.  He is fully God, and fully man in one person.  Jesus brings all of God’s love and mercy, kindness, compassion, and forgiveness for us to experience.  How awesome!  How wonderful!

As you spend time today with family and friends, opening gifts, sharing love, playing games, laughing hilariously, enjoying great meals together…I hope that you will also take time to acknowledge the great GIFT that God has given to each one of us today–His Son, Jesus Christ!  Jesus is the reason for the season!  Jesus is the gift that brings life, peace, joy and hope!  If you are struggling this morning with regrets, or failures, or sins that have marred your past–turn to Jesus, this is why He came!  Jesus is the friend of people who have blown it!  Jesus is the friend of people who feel their lives are ruined!  He has amazing grace for anyone who will call upon His name!  He came to bring us forgiveness and a new beginning!  Why not open your heart to Him right now, and receive all that He has for you and wants you to experience!

“Behold, I bring you good news of a great joy.  For to you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior who is Christ the Lord.”     Luke 2:10
