Jesus knew why He came, He knew He did not come to advertise His power or greatness. The bible said He stopped His brother John who wanted Him to go and parade what He can do (John 7:4). He knew He came exactly to do what the Father asked of Him: “redeem the lost”.
It was His priority and purpose; that is why He came as the Lamb of God, humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.
Jesus’ life on earth completely impacted the world’s belief system. His life revealed the Father and His true identity to the world. He saved, He healed, He molded character, influenced lifestyle, and also determined destiny.
He came and gave more than we ever expected: “ the hope of eternal life”- hope for the future. Because He came, we got it all! Glory be to God!
This Christmas when you gather with you family or friends, stop for a moment and worship the One who came as a baby to give us everlasting life - Jesus Christ-. When you receive a gift or give away one, think of His gift of salvation. Remember that Christmas is a personal promise to you and to me.
