I’m looking forward to the Christmas Eve service at our church, Harvest Bible Chapel, Peoria. Singing the praises of the King who came in human flesh as a humble child at Bethlehem never ceases to move me. But I’m especially excited that He is coming again–this time to reign as King on the throne of His ancestor, David of Israel. King David is Christ’s human ancestor, but His Father is God Almighty. Christ is the God/Man. What a gift to mankind that God would come in human flesh, not only to present Himself to us in a form we can relate to, but to be our substitute for human sin. Only a man who is also God could pay the price because the Father’s price for sin was a sinless substitute!
Only the redeemed who receive the precious gift of Christ’s atonement truly know what Christmas is all about. But even more, we know the greatest Christmas is yet to come when He returns. If you are looking for the ultimate gift this Christmas and do not yet know Christ as Lord and Savior, receive Him now. This could be your best Christmas yet.
Even so, Come Lord Jesus!!!
