Christmas is about the cross!

Two thousand years ago, the Creator of everything joined His creatures on the planet He created for us.  He became one of us, lived in one of the worst times of human history, and then died in the most terrible way imaginable.  But He is not dead!  Nay!  He had the power to lay down His life and the power to take it back up again!  He rose from the dead to defeat death for us.  He took His Father's wrath for the sins we have committed, and endured the penalty for those sins on the cross of Calvary.  Now, if we repent of our sins and trust Jesus for our salvation, we will join our Savior in an everlasting paradise, never to die, but to live for eternity praising the God who loved us so much!

 

While we reflect on the baby in the manger, Mary and Joseph, the wise men, the shepherds, the star, etc, let us remember that that little baby died from a Roman crucifixion for us.

 

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!!!
