That Jesus came into this world is biblically SIGNIFICANT but why He came into this world is paramount to our Christian faith.
It is quite simple: we can weigh ourselves down with our own expectations that we often fail meeting, or we can be assured of what God has accomplished for us through His beloved Son, which inspires us to be renewed each and every day, thereby allowing us to grow in Christ and share in Him.
The debate rages on, whether it is biblically authorized to celebrate Christmas. In the meantime, many in our American society celebrate the babe Messiah. For this reason we will rejoice over the fact that many are thinking about, talking about and praising the King’s entrance to save this dark and sinful world.
Leaders who are like the Scribes, Elders and Pharisees that Jesus both challenged and corrected are not the people we should typically seek out. In fact, we should beware of these type of people (Mark 12:38) and seek out the common person who is much more likely to receive the words of our Savior.
Christianity in our country is nothing like what Jesus and His disciples charged of believers. It is time for Christians leave the ease of life and “go outside the camp” where Jesus went.
Life changing choices are ultimately about choosing moral decisions. If it were we’d already be a perfect society. No, we’re bent on our selfish ways. But, when we choose life in Jesus Christ, God works divinely through our lives to bring about His glory!
Many in this country have forgotten how received our civil liberties and have thus taken our freedom for granted. How much more so for the freedom that is found in Christ!
The Bible, through God’s myriad of ways of pointing to Jesus as the world’s Messiah, opens “in the beginning” with the creation account without doubt, but also a shadowy introduction to the Savior to this darkened world.
A walk through the gospel of John reveals a major theme of the gospel: that Jesus is the life saving “light of the world”.
As believers we need to simply become awestruck by the manifold wisdom of God, who declares the glory of Himself through the story of His son…through a myriad of themes that span the Bible’s history of redemption! Thorns are just one of these such themes.
