Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God… 1 John 3:1a
All this month we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Son of God. Jesus became the Son of Man that we might become sons of God. We are saved because of the grace of Christmas. That’s not rhetoric—that’s reality!
You are eternally secure in Christ.
A little boy was talking about what it felt like to be saved. He said, “I am held in His hand.”
A cynic responded, “What if you slip through His hands?”
“Oh, that won’t happen,” the boy replied, “I’m one of His fingers.”
Amidst all the materialism that sometimes chokes out the true meaning of Christmas, take time to reflect on what His coming meant for all eternity. God became man. He took on a body of human flesh. Our Creator, our “Immanuel” (“God with us”) came and lived among us. Now, through faith in Christ, His Spirit lives within every believer. His Spirit is within you.
