Jesus the Light of Christmas
Jesus came to reign now and forever. Our first reaction to thinking about having a ruler in our lives might not be positive, but this is good news because we need a king.
Similar to two friends who need reconciliation, Jesus came to reconcile us to God. He came to remove the barrier of sin between people and God. In Christ’s situation, he took the initiative to reconcile us even though he was innocent.
Jesus came to teach us how to live, particularly by teaching us how to trust God. In John 14:1, Jesus states: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.”
Jesus reveals God to us through his words and works. He wants you, cares about you, and has a plan for you. As a result, we should worship God by devoting our lives to Him, speaking words that honor Him, and doing works that please Him. This Christmas, how will you worship Jesus?
