The Gift of Jesus

   The perfect One entered into our imperfect world, so that He could save the people He loves. He loves, and that's truly what Christmas is about. Christmas is about God's love, and how God's infinite love for us drove Him into action. This drastic action being the sacrifice of His only Son, His perfect Lamb. 

   The perfect Lamb of God is the real meaning behind our Christmas season. This season of love, giving, and joy began because of God's love, God's Gift, and the joy that it brings to us. We have joy because Jesus gave us hope. 

   The day before that first Christmas, the world was so lost and dark and there was no hope, but God didn't leave us there. God didn't leave us for dead (to sin), so He sent the final sacrifice of Jesus. From that moment in time, Hope was born into the world.

   "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage, rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness." (Philippians 2:6-7)

   You see, from the very beginning of time, Jesus held authority and power. Jesus from the very start was our Lord and Savior. He is our humble King, for He entered into our sin-stained world to save us. King Jesus humbled himself to be born into the world as a baby in a filthy manger. Think of the love! God's love is so perfect, that His perfect lamb, the King of kings and Prince of Peace, was meek and humble to take this place of a servant!

   "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men." (John 1:1-4)

   So, this Christmas, remember the true meaning. Remember that Christmas is all about God's pure and spotless Lamb, Love's pure Light, the One who humbled himself to be born into this world and save us. May the peace and joy and freedom of this truth envelope your Christmas. Be joyful, for God's Gift has given us every reason to be glad! God bless you and Merry Christmas!
