If there were no Jesus we would have:
NO Advocate, NO Salvation, NO Deliverer, NO Great High Priest, NO Mediator, NO Messiah, NO Redeemer, NO Shepherd, NO Light, NO Truth, NO Grace ... what a sad, lonely, hopeless life we would have.
The Old Testament foretells the coming of Jesus and the New Testament portrays Jesus` birth, life, death, resurrection and return. Without Jesus there would be NO Bible, only The Law! We would have NO guidebook for life and NO roadmap to heaven.
So Christmas should mean much more to us than the presents we receive from family and friends. Christmas should be a celebration of God`s precious gift to us, Jesus Christ His only begotten Son!
In Christ we have a hope and a future! In Christ we have not only redemption but forgiveness! In Christ we have an inheritance! In Christ we have access to God and fellowship with Him! In Christ we have the Holy Spirit, Grace and peace! Most importantly in Christ we have eternal life!
Why don`t you exchange gifts with Jesus this year...
give Him your life and in exchange He will give you ETERNAL life!
