Last Christmas, Elizabeth George (A Woman after God’s Own Heart) wrote this lovely blog about our Savior, that I wanted to share with you. It’s so easy to get involved in the festivities of the holiday that we often overlook the importance of why, we as Christians, celebrate Christmas.

Are you wondering, “Why do I need a Savior?” Many people ask this question when the Christmas season approaches. This is the reason Joseph was given regarding Jesus’ birth: “And [Mary] will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).

Consider all that Jesus the Christ, offers you and me. He:

S-ubstitutes His sinless life for our sinful one (2 Corinthians 5:21);
A-assures us of eternal life (John 10:28-29);
V-anquishes Satan’s hold on our life (2 Timothy 2:26);
I-nitiates us into the family of God (Galatians 4:4-6);
O-verthrows the power of sin (Romans 6:1-10); and
R-econciles us to a holy God (2 Corinthians 5:19).

Are you saved? Do you enjoy in Jesus Christ all that the word “SAVIOR” represents? If not, you can name Jesus your Savior right now. Pray, “Forgive my sins! Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.” You can begin your walk with the Savior today.

Pray and thank God for these truths. Rejoice, sing, and shout, “Hallelujah, what a Savior!”

Blessings to you and your family this Christmas, and in the coming year. May it be filled with rejoicing that we were gifted with a Savior, Jesus Christ.
