Two thousand plus years ago angels announced the birth of Jesus Christ. Though He was born in a manager, He would be known as King of the world, the Messiah, the Savior, God's Son.
He left His Heavenly throne to come down and be flesh. To live amongst us, to feel what we feel, to be betrayed and rejected by those who expected Him to do more than He had come to do.
We celebrate His birth but we also celebrate the opportunity that God gave us in offering His only son. He was sent as a sacrifice so that our sins would be paid for in advance. His death and resurrection allows us to go boldly before our Father God. When He hung on that cross, it was for you and for me. Everything He endured was due us and yet He chose to take the punishment on to himself.
We have much to celebrate. Angels have told on high and we have heard the good news. Spend each day as though its your last day. Be prepared to meet your maker. Spend your time here on earth making a difference for others. Your reward will await you in Heaven.
Live for God and celebrate what He has done for us!!!
