This applies to all y’all…all the time. Perhaps you’ve seen that meme that’s going around. “Q: Do I need Jesus to go to heaven? A: You need Jesus to go to Walmart.” This is why he came. As you celebrate the season, forget not the reason that babe was born in Bethlehem–omnipotent God veiled in helpless human flesh, came to die for the salvation of many. From the splendor of his throne room to the stench and squalor of the manger, to a humiliating, agonizing slow death on a very public cross between two criminals, he came to die to save depraved, rebellious souls.

Non-believers who do not know Christ as their Lord and Savior live life oblivious to the reality of their impending doom. The birth of Jesus is the Divine Solution for those who believe. The Incarnate Deity died…for me!  He is “…a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11), who is with “you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20).

“…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).

See you in church. We’ll sing, “Glory to the newborn king….” May it reverberate in your brain and resonate in your heart forever.
