This post is about only one piece of news: Jesus is the Messiah and the Savior of the whole world!
He came as a baby and was born in a stable with only a feeding trough for a bed, wrapped in swaddling cloths. God came to us in human form as Jesus the Christ. Born of the virgin Mary, betrothed to Joseph. He came to live as one of us, tempted as we are and feeling all of the pain and the problems that we have but He did it without sin. Something that we can’t do on our own.
Jesus came not to rule or to reign as a conqueror but as the Savior of mankind! In the few years of His ministry, Jesus healed many of their afflictions and raised some from being dead. He saved us from being dead toward God because of our sins and He gave us the ability to come before God with our prayers and our problems. We need to take this information out to the world around us and let everyone see that Jesus is the only way to be saved from our sins and from hell itself.
So, why did God send His Son to be the Messiah, the Savior of the whole world? Because He loves all of you so deeply He didn’t want any of you to be separated from Him. But, there are always going to be some people who don’t want to live as a Christian believer in Jesus and His sacrifice. Why? Because they want to help God save them by doing some things their way and not God’s way. Sounds a little crazy doesn’t it? I mean, why would God need our help to save us from an eternity in hell? The answer is…He doesn’t! All that we need to do is believe that He loves us enough that He made it possible for us to have salvation through His Son, Jesus, just by believing in Him and the work that only He could accomplish. That’s how the thief was saved. All that he could do was ask Jesus to remember him when He came into His Kingdom and Jesus told him that “today you will be with Me in Paradise”.
It only takes belief in Jesus’ atonement for you and a determination to follow Him for the remaining time that you have on Earth.
