At this time of year, kids from all over the world are busy making wish lists and hoping Santa Claus will stuff their stockings with the latest toys and gadgets. They flash-back to the toys they received last Christmas when all dreams came true and so they are waiting with anticipation for a Christmas morning to arrive.
Another season of celebrations have come, it is Christmas time, it is time to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus, but then, who is this baby Jesus. People just love Christmas but they take less to think of how precious that day that a king was born and why it is so important for Christians to keep remembering that day, about 2000 years ago. In fact, many takes more time thinking of how to make more money, how much truck drivers make per year (answer is here if you are wondering), and when they realize they earn a good pay, they spend even more time searching for a company that offers CDL training to join. Sadly, they rarely take time to think of Christmas and its importance and meaning in our lives. By the time you are done reading this article, you will have a clear idea of who Jesus is.
In the book of Isaiah 9:6 the bible says; for to us the child is given and the government shall be on his shoulder. His name shall be the wonderful counselor, the mighty God, Everlasting father, and the price of peace. All these are Jesus’s titles. In Matthew 1:21, it says, and she shall bring forth a son and you shall call him Jesus because He shall save people from sins.
Christmas celebrations is more than partying and visiting loved ones, however, the main reason for the holiday is usually ignored. Many fail to understand that there is power in acknowledging baby Jesus. But when you do so, you encounter Him and the power He carries.
A child is born in the house of David, but what is special about this particular baby? He came with a specified mission from God, and when He completed it He was no more since his completion required His death on the cross.
The baby Jesus was born to save humankind from the bondage of sins and the works of Satan. In 1 John 3:8 and 1 John 1:7, Jesus is the savior of the whole world. There is no other name that can save you but the name of Christ Jesus. In John 3:16, it says, and God for the love He had for the world, He gave his only son Jesus to die on the cross, that whoever believes in Him do not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus came to bridge the gap between humankind and God, to restore the original relationship they had in the garden of Aden. He was to restore all what was lost when Adam sold out to the devil, and help you reign in life. This is according to romans 5:7.
Who is this child Jesus? He is called wonderful because He is full of wonders. His wonders have never ended even after His death on the cross; His name is still working miracles today. He is a great counselor, mighty God, and the prince of peace because He is the one who brings peace into your soul and between you and God.
Surely, it is time to rejoice and make merry because about 2000 years ago God’s chosen vessel for humankind redemption was born. Today, you are a free man in Christ Jesus, as long as you accept Him as your lord and savior. Rejoice and be glad in the lord! Merry Christmas!
