Are You Daily Experiencing and Enjoying the Good News In the Coming of Jesus Christ?
The birth of Jesus Christ is the greatest news we could be given! Why?: because it is a standing invitation to experience, know and believe the love of God in all that He did and ever lives to do in eternally advocating the case and cause of all mankind, promising a second coming to gather those who have come to know Him in rested faith in Him and His finished work, to reign with Him eternally.
We affirm with the Apostle Paul, “For I am not ashamed of this Good News of Jesus Christ. It is the power of God at work unto salvation, saving and providing for everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. (Romans 1:16)”
As Jesus Himself said, ““for God so loved the world that He gave us His Son, that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life (John 3:16). “
To make it clear that everlasting or eternal life is not just an abstract and ethereal concept in an afterlife, but to be enjoyed in time called life and beyond in eternity, Jesus gave eternal life transcendent relevance to these terms, in this definition, “this is the real everlasting and eternal life: That they know you, The one and only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom You sent. (John 17:3)”
The Baby born in a manger did not remain that way. He grew up. As the King of glory and kings, and Lord of glory, hosts and lords, He: lived life as you and I do, offered Himself to take away our sin and make us righteous and healthy, conquered the evil one, death, hell, and the grave, rose again, ascended to Father God , fortified an eternal throne of Grace where we obtain mercy and find grace to help, and presides over His finished work to see that everyone who believes gets every bit of it as we await His second coming.
Daily experience, enter into, and live and enjoy the open door to the life God planned for you before the world began in sending Jesus Christ into the world! How? Celebrate The life of Christ all yearlong by growing in grace and the knowledge of Him, and receiving all things that pertain to life with the exceeding great and precious promises that impart His divine nature to keep and sustain you. (2 Peter 1:2-4 and 2 Peter 3:18)
You are loved and matter to God and to us.
