Jesus Christ, the Babe in the Manger — came specifically to die for the sins of the World, Jew and Gentile..Often we forget this truth at Christmas time.
It was predicted in the Old Testament that he would come to die for the Nation of Israel — but ALSO for the Gentiles!!
In the Old Testament: Isaiah 60:3 Speaking of the Lord and His Messiah:
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
And in the New Testament:Acts 28:28
Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek [Gentile].
At this time of fun and family, remember:
Jesus is THE SAVIOR – He died for YOU.. was buried and arose from the grave. He is ALIVE. Believe in Him — HE alone saves!!
Have a wonderful time celebrating the Savior’s birth and trust Him alone for your eternity..
And how can you know for sure?
