Baby! He’s the king of the universe!

God's gift to you this Christmas is himself - are you ready to receive him?

Your view of Jesus will shape your response to Jesus. If Jesus was just a baby and nothing more, it would be okay to pack him away with all the decorations after Christmas is over. But he’s more than just a baby, in fact he came to save people from their sins. More than that, Jesus isn’t just a man, he is God!

Check this - “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23). This sentence reveals even more to us about the identity of Jesus. He is God with us. When you meet Jesus you are actually meeting God, the creator of the universe!!

This is good news. Incredible news. God has come near. God knows our need. God has done something about it. God has become one of us, so that he can save people from their sins. When you view Jesus like this, you can’t keep treating him as a cute and cuddly Christmas Jesus.

Jesus is the SAVIOUR of the World; he came to save people like you.

Jesus is GOD WITH US; our need for a Saviour was so great that only God could come and be that Saviour.

Stop thinking of Jesus as a baby! My hope for you this Christmas is that you’d see the real Jesus. A good place to start would be to read one of Jesus’ biographies. Start here.
