“She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Savior], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God].”MATTHEW 1:21 AMPC
Have you met Jesus? No, He is not that painting on the wall in your living room with His arms stretched out. Neither is He the baby wrapped in a shawl hanging from your Christmas tree as decor.
Jesus is the Son of GOD. Jesus in Hebrew is “Yeshua” which is translated to mean “Saviour“. His name completely describes what He came to the earth to do. He came to save our fallen world.
“To save our fallen world from what exactly”?, you may ask . He came to save us from our sins, guilt, shame, suffering and from ourselves. Yes He came to save you from you.
Whether you admit it or not, you can be a great hindrance to yourself. Remember that time you were to make a speech in front of people. You were 100% ready for it but when it was time to deliver, you kept on saying to yourself that you couldn’t do it …
Jesus came so you could be free from all of these things. As a result of you receiving Him, you received the Holy Spirit who reminds you that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. He is the reason why when you got scared of making the speech again, a boldness arose from within you and you almost exceeded the time given. You felt like I have a dream. LOL!
Or maybe you haven’t accepted Christ yet so you can’t relate with all I’ve been saying. It’s fine! I’ll share Him with you. You have to genuinely repent and forsake whatever sin you’ve committed. Confess your sins to GOD and ask Him to help you forsake them. Just say this prayer :
“Father I acknowledge that I am a sinner, that Jesus died for me, that you raised him from the dead. Father please forgive me. I accept Jesus today as my Lord and my Saviour. I choose to walk in The Way. Amen. ”
It’s that simple!
Now you need to join a Bible believing church. This is to ensure that you are nurtured rightly. Also, you need to get baptized with water as a public show that you’re now with Jesus. You also need to be baptized in the Holy Ghost.
I trust you were inspired. Here’s a challenge for you : Copy your favourite part of this blog post and Repost on your status walls and social media pages or stories. Let’s remind everyone of who the reason for the season is.
Till I come your way tomorrow! ✌🏾
