GOD'S PLAN FOR OUR MESSIAH
Jesus’s great journey from the cradle to the cross to the crown begins with Christmas! He came into the world from outside of the world to be part of the world. He came to restore our righteousness. The baby born on Christmas is so much more than a character in the Nativity Scene. He came to redeem God’s people.
Jesus first came into the world as a baby laid in a feeding trough as A CRADLE. God’s Son came as an innocent, dependent child to experience life as a man so He could identify with you and me. He came as Emmanuel, which means “God with us.” His virgin birth was the vehicle chosen to bring the Savior of the world.
Jesus came to live a life of sacrifice and service. He left us the examples of how to love one another as God the Father loves us. He came to die on A CROSS. He came to conquer sin and death. Jesus was born to die as a substitute and sacrifice for you and me so that we can belong to God’s universal family. And He received what should have happened to us.
Jesus also came into the world to be exalted. He would receive A CROWN with honor and glory. He would become the Name above all Names and would sit at the right hand of the Father to rule in power and glory. And we will someday rule with Him as we spend eternity in His presence.
Ephesians 2:4-7 tells us, “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” We spiritually sit with Jesus in heavenly places, right now. And although we live in the world, we can experience heaven because we have dual citizenship.
The story of Christmas never ends. It goes on with you and me. Do you know the baby in the cradle? Have you accepted His sacrifice of the cross? Do you experience the benefits of His crown? May the Holy Spirit speak to your heart this Christmas. Don’t let this Christmas go by without experiencing and rejoicing in everything Jesus has given us and offers to us. From all of us at Branch of Life Church, we wish you and your families a blessed and holy Christmas Season!
