"And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
"And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:8-14)
Do you have peace with God this Christmas season? The only way you can get that is by pleasing God. Unfortunately, none of your good deeds will please God because "all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment." (Isaiah 64:6) This is why the Savior was born.
Jesus came to Earth, born of a virgin, and lived a perfect life. He never told lies, never stole anything, and always honored His parents. Even though Jesus didn't deserve to die, He went to the cross anyway to suffer through the punishment that we all deserve. Jesus paid your debt with His blood, then rose from the grave three days later.
Please cry out to God right now, asking Him to forgive you for every sin you've ever committed. Turn your will away from sin and turn to God by placing your faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone and what He did for you on that cross! Then, God will grant you eternal life and make you a new creation in Christ!
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come." (2 Corinthians 5:17) The greatest Christmas gift ever given was peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ! Receive the gift today!
