My birth was not a ‘season’ but the beginning of the end–which is the beginning.
“And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.”” Luke 1:30-33
All must die, for the body is not eternal; the spirit would live forever, were it not for sin. Sin brought death to the spirit, while the body lived on–for the spirit to live for eternity it must be born anew–made new.
“–Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
I came as a child that you might ‘see’. I came as a babe that you might believe…
that you could be made new–totally freed, from a life of sin and death. A life without Me–yearns to be free.
Invite Me to your home this night. Ask Me in–I’ll bring the light. And then you’ll ‘see’ that all you need, is the gift that was given–the One True Light.
“In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4
That Light is Me.
“The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world new him not.” John 1:9
“And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7
There was no room at the Inn, will you ask Me in?
“But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” John 1:12-14
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
