The Person of Christmas
What is Christmas all about? Is it about gifts? NO. Family? Not really. Decorations? No. Cookies and candy? No. Carols? No. Peace on Earth? No. Good will toward men? No. Its about Christ. Its about a person.
Christ came to bring salvation to mankind. Salvation is not an entity to be gotten. But a person to be received. And that person is Jesus the Christ. But who is this Jesus? Who is this Christmas child? Who is the person of Christmas?

Jesus came that we might have life. He came to ransom the lost. He came to give the gift of salvation. And just like any other gift you are given; it has to be received. Will you accept God’s gift of salvation?
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23)
Will you call upon him today to be your savior? “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13)
It is simple:
Admit that you are a sinner (Rom. 3:23). Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins (Rom. 5:8). And Call upon Jesus to be your Savior (Rom. 10:13)
