The exciting thing about Christmas is the purpose for which Jesus was born; the reason He came. He came that you might have life, the God-life, to the fullest.
The Bible scripture 1 John 5:10 states - “He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.”
Jesus didn’t come to establish a new religion; neither did He come to show us an example of how to live the good life. He came to make us sons and daughters of God, which is seen in the Bible scripture John 1:12 - “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:”
God’s desire for us to have His kind of life, and His plan, according to the Bible, was for Jesus to give us this life, which is seen in the Bible Scripture 1 John 5:11-12 - And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
Apostle Paul referenced something very powerful and significant about the Christ-life in us in the Bible scripture Colossians 1:26-27 - “The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
Have you ever tried to imagine what Christ living in a person really means? Sadly, many people haven’t taken the time to really understand what that means to each one of us. If Jesus Christ, who opened blind eyes, unstopped deaf ears, gave the lame new legs to walk, healed the maimed, and raised the dead, truly lives in you, what should that make you?
It means you’re invincible; empowered; and an extraordinary success; a victor forever, all in Him! This is what makes Christmas special; it’s Christ alive in you. He came for you, to live in you, and to live through you.
