Jesus is the reason for season
By Pastor John Snyder
John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Over 2,000 years ago, God came to Earth as a man to become the Savior of the world.
Jesus was born in the little town of Bethlehem to fulfill His destiny. Jesus’s birth, death on the cross, and resurrection became not only the hope of the nation of Israel, but He became the hope for everyone.
God showed His great love for us by demonstrating it with Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and His victorious resurrection. Jesus made a way for us to be saved, delivered from our sins, born again, and become the righteousness of God. This means that anyone can have a personal relationship with Jesus, have sins forgiven, and have eternal life.
Jesus really is the reason for the season.
As we celebrate His birth these next few weeks, let us remember the ultimate price He paid for us with His great sacrifice. Let us receive the salvation He freely offers to us by accepting Jesus as our personal Savior. Everlasting life is available today. Just invite Him into your heart and life.
Begin a new journey and a personal relationship with Jesus. The blessings of God are waiting to fully be released in our lives. after we become born again by the supernatural work of His spirit in our hearts.
Let us not forget the reason for the season that has been prepared for us since the foundation of the world! Jesus has given us great love, hope, and joy. Help spread love, hope, and joy to others this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
