My dear friend, may I ask you this very personal question since we are in the “Christmas” season? Do you truly comprehend and believe the biblical message of ETERNAL salvation put forth by Almighty God in His infallible Word? Do you fully comprehend without a shadow of a doubt that your ABSOLUTE GREATEST NEED is to be delivered from your fallen humanity and the wrath of your Creator (John 3:36, 1 John 5:12)? My friend are you fully prepared for your ETERNAL abode? Do you have the ABSOLUTE PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS required by Almighty God (Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:2-4)? My friend, no one does and that is why we need Almighty God's Savior so desperately!

This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be satisfying propitiation that would make peace on earth.

No wonder the angelic multitude on that night 2000 years ago rejoiced with EXCEEDINGLY GREAT JOY, for they FULLY understood what this lost world did not. For what sin had destroyed, Almighty God was seeking to redeem. This child would - by the shedding of His RIGHTEOUS BLOOD one day - make FULL ATONEMENT for all who would place their absolute trust in Him and that He would be the satisfying propitiation that would bring TRUE peace to the earth earth (1 John 2:2). Indeed Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS intentions and good will towards mankind were expressed in the sending of His precious Son (John 3:16-17). Oh beloved, that is what Christmas is about!!

Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago?

A Savior was born! Do you personally know Him? That is your own personal choice to make. Have you given heed to the glorious angelic message of old as the shepherds that night did 2000 years ago (Luke 2:9-12)? All who hear God's proclamation and obey it will find Him will (Luke 2:15-18). May it be so that you choose to receive the LOVE of Almighty God which is His dear Son who is the greatest gift this Christmas season and every season! Place your trust in Him today, you will NEVER EVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

I've not only been to "the manger" both figuratively and literally but most importantly, I've been to the Cross!

God bless us, each and every one and while a good and gracious God does bless us He only forgives us through Jesus Christ our Lord!
