Merry Christmas!

I was thinking about Christmas and what it's all about.  Yes, "Jesus is the Reason for the Season"...but it's more than that.  Yes, we're celebrating the birth of Jesus...but it's more than that too.  Today we celebrate and thank God for giving us His Son, not just to be a baby in a manger, but to "save His people from their sins"!

As I thought on this, I started thinking about where in the Bible it specifically states that this is why Jesus came.  I have listed below the two verses that came to my mind.  Perhaps you can think of a few others to add to the list.

Praise the Lord with me for the greatest gift of all - His great gift of salvation!
  • "...Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief"!              (I Timothy 1:15)
  • "...the Son of Man came...to give His life a ransom for many"!  (Mark 10:45)
Merry CHRISTmas, one and all!  Enjoy the time with your loved ones...and remember to thank the Lord for the gift that really matters!
