Jesus The Real Reason of This Season

Jesus The Real Reason of This Season

Did you know that Jesus is the real reason for this season?
Well, of course you do, that’s why you’re here.
But do we know why He’s the reason for this season we celebrate?

  • WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT ABOUT THIS LITTLE BABY that He managed to divide our CALENDAR in two, Before & After Christ.
  • That bought down the largest army empires of the world
  • Yet today the same spirit is alive in Christians and persecutions still can’t stop it growing!!!
    You see the night that Jesus was born, an angel appeared to the shepherds who were watching their flocks by night. “And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.’”Luke 2:10-11

    The Angel had ONE message to deliver: The Messiah had been born.
    But WHY did the angel say Jesus was born?
    (He is born to be a savior.)
    “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour”

    Now that’s a simple Christmas kind of statement. But – behind that simple phrase – is a whole wealth of insight. For example: The fact that Jesus came to be our savior” means that He came to be my rescuer.  That means, I NEED HIM!!

One Christmas Card said it this way:
“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us a financial planner.
But since our greatest need was forgiveness, God sent us a Savior.”

The Bible says that I NEEDED Jesus and that He came to save me!!!
But now, the question is: What did He save me from?

The angel that appeared to Joseph told him that Mary would “… give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people FROM THEIR SINS.”Matthew 1:21

The problem with that statement is, when it comes to our personal life, most of us don’t think we are in need help let alone saving?  I know I didn’t, I thought I would keep working hard to make my life into something, but it didn’t get better, it just got worse, it took a tragedy to bring me to my knees, that tragedy bought change to my life that I am eternally grateful for!!

Why?  Because our sin separates us from God and the only way to remove that separation is for someone to pay the price.  God didn’t want all of mankind to die for there sin that the Devil caused, so He allowed His son to take the payment on our behalf!!

You see un-dealt with sin will remind you of your guilt – and all of a sudden, something will remind you of what you said/did or thought.
And suddenly the shame, guilt and embarrassment sweeps over you like a wave and it leaves you feeling low, failure, self-hatred and maybe anger. Wishing you can remove this from your life!!!
This is why Jesus came and why we celebrate the Birth of Christ!!  Without the birth of Jesus, there would be no payment for sin world-wide!!

I trust that we all here will not miss this message of why we are here, not just to have a lunch although that’s nice, but more than that.

Romans 4:25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

Romans 5:1  Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.  Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
I would encourage us all here today, to not complete this celebration without honoring the creator of it….
