The Reason for the Season

There's a common saying among Christians this time of year. "Jesus is the Reason for the Season."

Our dear friend and pastor suggested a slight variation of that saying this morning during our worship service.

"I am the Reason for the Season."

Jesus came to earth to become man, live a sinless life, and then offer Himself as the perfect sacrifice to God for our sins. He did that out of love. Love for mankind, yes, but on a more personal level, He did that for me. Jesus would have done what He did if I'd been the only person on earth to ever call out to Him for salvation.

So in a very real sense, I am the Reason for the Season. Thank you, Lord for your gift of Christmas - for your gift of the cross.

Christmas is about two births: the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ is the first birth to celebrate, without which there would have been no second birth.
The second birth is the one where we are reborn as new creatures in Him, at the moment of our salvation.

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6


Merry Christmas to all my brothers and sisters in Christ out there in cyber space. Praise Him from Whom all blessings flow.

And the most amazing part...

God so loved each of us (undeserving) that He provided His Son Jesus Christ the Messiah to pay the penalty we should pay. All that so we could simply trust in Christ to be our Savior and pass from death to Life in Christ.

Amazing, Amazing Grace.. to save a wretch like me!
