Merry Christmas! The twelve days of Christmas have begun, Christmas Day being the first day of Christmas. This is a holy and peaceful time of year. The shopping frenzy of the Santa Claus festival has come to an end and we can ponder the miracle of God becoming man. Why would God do that? The Gospel of John records Jesus’ explanation. It’s in John 3:16:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.
What is at stake is no less than our immortal destiny: we can live with God forever or we can perish without God. Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection are the most important events that have ever occurred on this earth. They opened the door for us to have eternal life with God. How does that work? Believe in Jesus! But how can I believe if I don’t know much about him? Aha, join us and learn about him with us.
