What the Bible has to say about Christmas

We all love Christmas. Some celebrate it with Santa Claus, presents, and trees, while others choose just a few of these things and still others don’t celebrate the day at all, but are glad that Christ was born. It isn’t important to God exactly how you celebrate it just that you understand its meaning. (Romans 14:5  One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.)

The point is this:

God loved you enough to send his Son to die for you.

(John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.)

(1 John 4:10  Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.)

Jesus Christ loved you enough to give his life for you.

(Romans 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.) (John 10:11  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.) (John 15:13  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.)

People in hell don’t want you to come there.

(Luke 16:23-28 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, … he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.)

People in heaven are watching to see what you will decide. (Hebrews 12:1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,)

Do you know someone who is praying that you will be saved? A grandmother, an aunt, a friend? All they want is to see you in Heaven and not Hell.

I want you to be saved enough to risk offending you and ask

you to turn from your sin and by faith receive the gift of G od’s grace, eternal life. (Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.) (Ephesians 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.)

How? If you believe, and say, “I want to be saved, I just don’t know how.” Then here it is.

(Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.)

Want to give Christ a present on His day?

(Luke 15:10  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.)

1)  God loved you enough to send his Son to die for you.

2)  Jesus Christ loved you enough to give his life for you.

3)  People in hell don’t want you to come there.

4)  People in heaven are watching to see what you will decide.

5)  Someone here on earth is praying for you.

6)  I have told you, and you have read it from the Word of God.

The choice is your’s. Please accept the greatest gift ever given. If you have trusted in Christ as your saviour, tell others. God loved them so much that he would send His Son to die for us. Someone told me of God’s love and now I tell you. Tell someone else, all the hard work has been done.

He has a request, for those that are saved.

(Matthew 9:37  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.)

Merry Chistmas Christ, I’m glad you came.
