Luke 1 & 2 - The Birth of Christ
Merry Christmas! We celebrate with all the world the Birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. Today we review the key events from the Book of Luke and how it came to pass the miracle of all miracles, God becoming man and dwelling among us. The only way we can be delivered from the bondage of sin and death is to be united through repentance with God Himself revealed to us in the life of Jesus, the only begotten (Eternal Son of God).
Jesus always existed. He was not made, but Eternal God within The Holy Trinity. His role within the Trinity was to be The Savior of sinners, all who have been born to realize they were not followers of God by human will or birth. But had to be drawn by the Holy Spirit to know their need for forgiveness and then become Born Again by another miracle of God. Who alone can make all things new and forgive and grant to all who believe in Everlasting Life and become the children of God through a second birth. Christmas celebrates the purpose and absolute necessity of why Jesus was born to become like us, yet without sin. He alone was the only one who could sacrifice His life for us on the cross so we would have the opportunity to be made right with God and be forgiven of our rebellion against the Creator God. As the song said, Born that man May no more may die, born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth!
