The Gift of Salvation: A Christmas Redemption

In the quiet town of Bethlehem, over two thousand years ago, a celestial story unfolded, one that continues to captivate hearts around the world. As we celebrate the joyous season of Christmas, we invite you to discover the profound message of hope and salvation found in the true meaning of this special day.

 

"The Promise Fulfilled"

"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." (Micah 5:2)

In the hushed whispers of ancient prophecies, the town of Bethlehem emerged as the stage for the fulfillment of divine promises. This prophecy from Micah, written centuries before, pinpointed Bethlehem as the birthplace of the Messiah, whose origins stretch back to eternity. Christmas isn't merely a historical event; it's the culmination of God's faithful promises.

 

"The Manger Miracle"

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2:11)

In a rustic manger, the divine narrative took an extraordinary turn. The birth of Jesus, announced by heavenly hosts to shepherds in the fields, marked the incarnation of God Himself. The Creator entered His creation, wrapped in humility. This manger, once a feeding trough, now cradled the Lamb of God, a resting place of eternal significance.

 

"The Star of Redemption"

"When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy." (Matthew 2:10)

The night sky above Bethlehem was adorned with a celestial proclamation—the Star of Bethlehem. Wise men, guided by its brilliance, embarked on a journey of faith. This star symbolizes the divine light that leads seekers to Christ. As we celebrate Christmas, may we, too, find joy in following the light that leads to redemption.

The Gift of Grace

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:8)

As we unwrap the layers of Christmas, we encounter the heart of the gospel—grace. Ephesians 2:8 declares that our salvation is a gift, unearned and undeserved. God's grace, manifested in the birth of Jesus, invites us into a relationship with Him. Christmas is not just about the nativity; it's about receiving the incomparable gift of God's grace.

A Personal Invitation

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him." (Revelation 3:20)

In the midst of the festive season, there is a deeply personal invitation echoing from Revelation 3:20. Jesus stands at the door of our hearts, gently knocking. The celebration of Christmas is incomplete until we open our hearts to receive the Savior. This invitation is extended to all—a call to embrace the transformative power of God's love and grace.

We would love to have you join us in Church this Sunday! Going to church is important but there is something so much more important and that is knowing for sure that you have a home in Heaven one day when you die. 

  1. Believe in Jesus Christ:

    • "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6, KJV)

    • Salvation begins with a personal faith in Jesus as the Son of God and the only way to eternal life.

  2. Acknowledge Your Sin:

    • "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23, KJV)

    • Recognize your own sinfulness and need for forgiveness.

  3. Repentance and Confession:

    • "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9, KJV)

    • Romans 10:9 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    • Repentance involves turning away from sin and confessing your sins to God, seeking His forgiveness.

  4. Know It is Done!

  • John 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

  • John 3:36 - He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

  • John 10:28 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

  • 1 John 5:13 - These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
