THE REASON FOR CHRISTMAS

by Pastor Victor Adeola King 

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21, ESV).

In this verse, God the Father sent His angel to explain to Joseph that the Child Mary was carrying had a purpose. And the reason for Christ’s coming is to save everyone who will receive Him.

Why do we need a Savior?

We all need a Savior because we have sinned against God and we cannot save ourselves. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23, ESV). The consequence of our sin, the consequence of our disobedience is death. It is eternal separation from God. “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23, ESV). 

So, Jesus came to save us from our sin. He came so we can be forgiven and receive the free gift of God which is eternal life. When you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior, Christ’s righteousness will be bestowed upon you. God will see you through the righteousness of Christ. He will see you as if you have never done anything wrong.

Jesus Christ, Savior and King

If you don’t have a relationship with Christ, you’re the reason Jesus came, (Luke 19:10; John 3:16-17). Open your heart and receive Him today. He is your Savior.

If you have a relationship with Him, you’re the reason He came, (John 18:37). Surrender your all to Him. Follow Him daily. Live in obedience to His Word. He is your King.
