And she will have a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21 NLT
This month I thought I would focus on the messianic prophecies of Christ’s birth and mission. So often Jesus gets forgotten with all the commercial hype of Christmas, Santa Claus, presents, and parties. We forget the reason for the season. Though we don’t know when Jesus was born it is a great opportunity to share His love with others. Share the story of Jesus’ birth with your children and grandchildren. When you are planning your Christmas gifts be sure to include the local shelters and food banks. I like to purchase chickens and goats for organizations that give them to families to provide a means to earn a living. There is so much that can be done during the month of December and throughout the year to show the love of Christ to others.
We give because we have received the most wonderful gift of all – eternal salvation through Christ.
All right then, the Lord Himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a Child! She will give birth to a Son and will call Him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). Isaiah 7:14 NLT
