Story of Lord Jesus Christ Reason and Celebration of Birth

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." - John 3:16-17

It was predicted in the book of Isaiah hundred of years before Jesus was born that He, the Son of God, will take birth to save the world from its sins. God created this world with love. He wants us all to live in love and harmony; but we, in our selfish interests, choose the path of sloth, gluttony, lust, and avarice instead.

We thus separate ourselves from the path God laid out in front us: the path of love. Jesus came to Earth to set an example before us of how we should lead our lives here. He came to teach us the lesson of selfless service, compassion, humility, and forgiveness. He's the bridge between us and God to help us seek forgiveness for our sins. He's the provider of eternal hope to those who choose to believe in Him.

The powers Jesus had transcend human abilities. Overcoming temptation, He lived a sinless and perfect life in service of others. In His life on Earth He performed 23 documented and witnessed miracles - healing people with his gentle touch, turning water into wine, and even bringing some back from the dead.

 As indicated in the book of Mark, verse 14:72, and the book of Matthew, verse 16:18, Jesus also possessed prescient powers. There were non-believers who ridiculed and humiliated Him for His ability to predict the future, but never once did He falter from His path of love. Enduring all the pain and sufferings of beatings, doubt, humiliation, and the final crucifixion, He willingly paid for our sins. But death on the cross could not limit Him - He overcame death and was resurrected to be with God, His father in heaven.

To believe in Lod Jesus and His message of Salvation is to ensure an everlasting life of joy and peace.

"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." - Acts 2:38.
