The following verses are some of my favorite passages concering the birth of Jesus Christ.
Luke 2:25-30 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Verse 30 is a very powerful verse. Please take the time to meditate on this verse. Simeon knew exactly who the child was and is; salvation. Salvation to not only the Jew but to the Gentile. To everyone who will receive Him [Jesus] as their Saviour.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Jesus Christ knew the reason He came to this earth.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The greatest gift ever given was given to us two thousand years ago by God the Father in His Son, Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If you never received Christ as your Saviour, ask Him to save you and receive the greatest gift of all time!
Recently, I finished the book by Glenn Beck. "The Christmas sweater". I will do a quick review in the next few days. The short version; I highly recommend the book!
