Then the angel said to them-“Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people,
For there is born to you this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2 : 10-11
Some adults- if they had a ‘wish list’ – would probably ask for –
To live a happy and secure life- with family and friends -without sickness -old age -or death!!
“The gift of God is Eternal life” (Romans 6:23)
This is the time when people are thinking of giving or receiving gifts.
God’s greatest ‘gift’ to this world was Jesus- and Jesus’ gift is eternal life –
A gift that cost Him his LIFE.
There are some who have laid to rest a loved one this year-
and have had time to think of death and the resurrection of our loved ones.
I too have had this sad loss of a dear brother earlier this year.
God’s plan for a great family reunion centers in the ‘Babe of Bethlehem”-
Unfortunately the world have taken Jesus out of the season to celebrate.
It does not matter that no one knows the exact date of His birth-
the very fact that He was born itself calls for celebration and rejoicing.
Because this Child was born and fulfilled His Mission- there will be a resurrection –
Why should Jesus come again when He came 2000 years ago?
One of the the answers is that the resurrection depends on His Second Coming!
There will be a time when Christ will return.
Those who love the Lord – will be caught up in the air with our resurrected loved ones-
To live with Him forever- and there will be no more death.
As we think of the real reason for this season-
I want to rejoice that soon He will come again- the Second time.
Wishing you- God’s Blessings – His love – and His Peace be with you during this time
when we think of the Birth of Christ – and rejoice that soon He will come again –
and make an end to death.
