THE HOPE THAT IS ALWAYS PRESENT
16 DEC 2018
...She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins... Matthew 1:21 (NIV)
A hope that encourages us.
The birth of Christ show's us God's purpose
Christ had a purpose of coming to earth
To reconcile man to God
To offer forgiveness
To take away our fears
God's promise of the Messiah was fulfilled
God's promise is to eternally defeat Satan
God's promise is to offer blessings
Immanuel: God with us, One of us, God for us!
We can live out everyday lives with assurance
We have God with us until eternity
So this Christmas, are you aware of God's purpose? Do you know God's promise, as if it was fulfilled through His Son? Is God present in your life? The word of God to you today is "Fear not! Jesus has been born! God has entered the world - and you don't have to be afraid anymore!"
