But, our death does not make amends for our sins. So without the right “payment” we have no hope for life… for a life of intimate connection with God. It is God who is LIFE! When we sin we walk away from LIFE!
But God, who loves us more than we can think or comprehend so wants us to live eternally with Him, devised a saving plan for all of us!!!!
He would send Jesus, God in the flesh, down to earth to live as a real man and He would save us through paying the price for our sins!
He would die in our place and shed his blood in our stead!
But not just any blood! His perfect sinless blood.
A word that appears in the bible and means that something is so awesome that we should stop and think about it for awhile! So I say to you…
May you celebrate Jesus’ birth with a new love and devotion!
I pray this Advent season Jesus’ birth has a deeper and awesome meaning!
