CHRISTMAS MESSAGE – THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL – Isaiah 1:18

Isaiah 1 vs 18

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18) 

During this time of the year we need to realize that Jesus Christ is the reason we celebrate Christmas.

Over 2000 years ago, God’s love came down from heaven to earth and the world was blessed with a miracle of love. 

With a guiding star and a choir of angels rejoicing from heaven, they pointed to a tiny babe within the manger, a Savior bringing peace to earth, the greatest gift of all.  

Jesus did not come to a throne, but a manger; He lived not as a king, but as a servant. He chose not an earthly kingdom, but a cross. He gave not just a little, but He gave us everything. 

As we look at the snow covered field, we are reminded of what Jesus did for us and what Isaiah wrote about over 600 years before the Messiah was born: Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18)

Jesus came to the earth as a baby, grew in favor and wisdom, died on the cross for all of us and rose again and sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven. One day He will come for those who have made Him the Lord of their lives, those who obey Him and have accepted Him as their Savior.

Yes, Jesus came to be a glorious light in a darkened world; He came to bring hope to everyone. Jesus is the light of the world and a gift to us from God. He was sent to the world to save us from sin and eternal damnation. He was sent to us, as the most amazing gift from God. “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Of all the gifts you will ever receive, the gift of salvation that Jesus Christ offers us, is by far the most precious gift you will ever receive because it is one that will last for all eternity.

In honor to our Savior let us love Him and obey His commandments, therefore, why not give tribute to Jesus in everything that we say, think and do, today and every day of our life.  

Remember, true salvation always results in a holy life ready to serve our gracious God who has granted us deliverance from the bondage of sin. 

If you have never trusted in Christ as your Savior, you find yourself in darkness and the shadow of death. The good news however is that God is merciful to all sinners. That is why Jesus came to earth as a baby. Ask Him to guide you into the way of peace. Repent of your sins and trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior. If you submit to Christ you will know His tender mercy that forgives all your sins. You will know the real meaning of Christmas.

Celebrating the humble birth of our glorious Savior, we wish you a Season with overflowing peace and joy.
