Keep CHRIST in Christmas:  chrisT – The Way, Truth and Light 

From previous posts, Jesus entered this world in a unique way – born of a Virgin.   His life was unique in that He was both God and Man and as such uniquely prepared as the only qualified mediator (see 1 Tim 2:5) between God and Man.    God sent His Son to do what no one else was capable of – be an offering for the sin of the world so we could be restored to God.   He is the Redeemer and Rescuer that God Himself provided.  It has been said that there are over 300 predictions in the Old Testament concerning the first coming and life of the Christ, all of which have been fulfilled. The odds of just 8 of those 300 being exactly fulfilled is 1017 ( 1 in 100 quadrillion).   This is why Jesus could make the claim recorded in John 14:6.

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

Just in case what has been presented isn’t enough proof for you, consider as well that after His death on the cross He rose from the dead to confirm what He said.   His resurrection shows us that His death was for our sins and not His, because if He had remained in the grave, then His death would have been for His own sins.

This Christmas recognize the gift that God has sent you.  Will you accept God’s Gift of salvation through Jesus?    The choice is yours.  Ask God to guide you in your search and knew that He will.   Let me wish you a very Merry Christmas in which the Christ is the most important part!
