Why was Jesus born?

Rebellion against God

Why was Jesus born?
In Luke’s Gospel Chapter 2 and verse 11 we read “Unto you is born this day ..... a Saviour which is Christ the Lord”
This is one of the most wonderful statements in all of scripture in that Jesus Christ was born in the divine plan that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life – sending a Saviour to save us who were born in sin and doomed unto everlasting punishment so we can ask ourselves “Why is this birth that we celebrate at Christmas so special?”
God’s plan was “In the fullness of time He sent forth His son to redeem us who were under the law” and the relevance of this birth is to show:
1) The need of the sinner
Sin is abounding on every side, Church attendance is falling, people are disrespectful to the Sabbath day where Sport is taking the place of public worship, the Word of God is not taught in homes and yet people like to “use Christian worship” as a means on convenience for baptism, wedding and funeral and still refuse to be subject to the laws of God. Romans Chapter 6 and verse 23 clearly states “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The great need for every person ever born is the Lord Jesus Christ to be Saviour and Lord of their life in every walk and to honour His day at public worship.
2) The name of the Saviour
People may ask who is this Jesus who is born in a manger. He is the only begotten Son of God who came to offer Himself on Calvary’s Cross, shed every drop of His blood to save man from a Christ less hell. Yes he is God’s only remedy for a sin sick society and we as members of the Black Institution - every one of us – need our sins cleansed in His precious blood. The Hymn writer puts it this way
What can wash away my sin, nothing but the Blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again, nothing but the Blood of Jesus
That was why he was called “A Saviour which is Christ the Lord.
3) The now of Salvation
Yes behold now is the accepted time now is the day of Salvation so this is an URGENT MATTER
How urgent this matter is NOW and dear friend it is at the peril of your Soul’s Eternal destiny that you refuse, Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost and to continue to refuse His Salvation means to be cast into the lake of fire for all Eternity where there is weeping and wailing for ever and ever – no end. That is why Jesus is asking you to “Come unto me....and I will give you rest.
Dear reader I implore you at this Christmas time to come and accept this Child of Bethlehem the dear Lord Jesus Christ, confess your sin to Him and invite Him to be your Saviour and He says...”him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out
May this Christmas be a happy one for you all as you give Christ His rightful place in your life.
