Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, righteously, and in godliness in this present world.
God's grace and mercy has not only been revealed to humanity through Christ Jesus, but it was sent and made available to all who would believe. Mark 9:23-Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Yes, the way of escape from the penalty of sin and death was made possible over 2k years ago when God Himself put on flesh in the form of Jesus Christ, came to earth as a baby born of a virgin, lived among us as an example for us, died on a wooden cross on a hill called "Golgotha", Calvary's Hill and was resurrected 3 days later all for you and I.
John 1:14-The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Acts 4:12-There is no salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
Jesus is He! There is no other name!
Salvation has come and has been revealed for all eyes to see! He came to live and then die to pay the penalty for sin which we ourselves could not pay. Romans 5:8- But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
The good news on today is that none of us is beyond God's reach. I do not care how far you have laid or wallowed in sin, God is able to save you and He has made the way available for you to be saved through Christ.
In a world where all the pleasures of this world will one day be no more, God has presented the opportunity for ALL of us to be "SAVED" and set free from sin and eternal separation from Him.
JUST FOR YOU! YES, JESUS CAME AND DIED IT JUST FOR YOU!
What will you do with Jesus? He has done His part in coming to save you from your sins. What is your response?
My prayer in this season in which we celebrate the birth of "Christ Jesus", our Risen Savior is that you will unwrap the "GIFT OF SALVATION" that has been revealed and made available to ALL who would believe.
Thank You Lord!
