- Holidays and Celebrations
Merry Christ-day, everyone!
I thank the Lord for my salvation. It all started when God came to earth in my human form. He knows and understands every iota of my being because He became one – a man just like me.
On this Christmas season, I celebrate Christ-day, the coming of my Savior and King. I remember how He was birthed in my spirit that brought about my own rebirth. I am so happy to be born again!
In His first coming as a baby, all the heavens and nature sang. (Luke 2:13-14) The whole angelic host was one massive choir rejoicing in God’s plan of salvation and peace for all mankind.
But the next time He returns, the Second Coming, those same angels will be clad for war. (Revelations 19:14)
That’s why now, in this Period of Grace, we should affirm our allegiance to the King of kings, to Him who was born to save us from our sins and misery, to Him who was born to die on our place for the punishment we so deserve. What a gracious act of redemption!
“Yes, it is true I am a king,” answered Jesus. “I was born for this, I have come into the world for this — to bear testimony to the truth. Everyone who is on the side of truth listens to my voice.” (John 18:37 OEB)
Are you on the side of truth?
