The Lord God is good for sending His Son to us. The scripture tells us in John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us..” It was the Savior who dwelt among us. The word “dwelt” means that Christ tabernacled or pitched a tent among us. Jesus was a man who experienced pain, suffering, rejection, weakness and temptation, yet He did not sin.
Jesus is the one who bridges the path of man back to God. Without Christ no man can come to the Father. Jesus said that He is the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father except through Him. Jesus is the most important baby born in all of human history. The angels said to the Shepherds out in the fields in Luke 2 “We bring you tidings of great joy which shall be for all people”. Jesus is the embodiment of “Great News” to us!
Paul stated over in Romans 5:1 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”. Since Christ is the bridge so that man can gain access to God, He brings peace between God and mankind. Prior to becoming a believer in Christ we all were at war with God spiritually. When we became believers in Christ we surrendered the war with God. Now, we are at peace with God through His Son Jesus Christ. Praise be to Him who came to the earth to bring peace and salvation to the whole world.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas!!
