Did you know
that the Christmas promise—the promise of a coming Messiah—was first made thousands of years before Jesus Christ’s birth?
If we miss this, we risk missing the whole point of Christmas. Christmas is about an incredible promise God made to Adam and Eve that took thousands of years to be fulfilled. It’s about that promise…and then waiting a very long time.
Don’t get me wrong. At the right time, Jesus Christ was born. The Lord added scores of prophecies to His original one, telling His people precisely when, and where, and why, Jesus Christ would be born.
The miracle isn’t that a handful of shepherds and wise men came to worship the newborn King of kings…but that many others didn’t flock to Bethlehem to greet His entrance into the world.
The Gospel of John, chapter 1, verses 11 and 12, tells us that Jesus came to “his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”
What about you? Have you received Jesus? Have you believed in His name? If not, please pray and do so today. Don’t delay. Today, you can receive God’s greatest gift of all. Receive Christ
