They Didn’t Want Me

Christmas

 

 

It is the time of year were many are in a festive mood celebrating Christmas! Yet, I want us to stop and think about a certain someone. I begin by asking, ever been rejected by someone? I’m sure we all have. Not a nice feeling is it? Yet, there is somebody in specific I want to mention. Somebody who has, and still, receives a lot of undeserved hate! Someone who has faced a lot of rejection, and yet receives all who come!

Born with YOU in mind!

Christmas

 

Ever think about for whom it was that Jesus came to
this Earth for? Yes, Jesus came with you, specifically in mind! “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only [begotten] Son…” (John 3:16) Are you a part of this world? Of course! Then Jesus came for you! “For God so loved ____________ [enter your name], that he gave his only [begotten] Son…” Yet, why did God give His Son for you? Why was it necessary for Him to be  born into this world?

Good News of Great Joy!

Christmas

 

First of all, the word “gospel” means “good news.” So then, what is this “good news” that we find proclaimed in the pages of God’s Holy Word? Well, we know that Paul the apostle took the proclamation of the gospel extremely seriously! For he wrote, “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16) We also should know to take the gospel in a most earnest fashion ourselves! For it is also written, “When the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marvelled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed.” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10) Yet, we also read, “And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.’” (Luke 2:10) So then too, this word from Paul, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-8) Clearly, God jealously guards the proclamation of this one true gospel, this good news! So what is this “good news” that one must “believe” to be saved, or otherwise face the “vengeance” of God?! What is this, “Good news of great joy that will be for all people”? Let us take a look…
