KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 1:21 KJV “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”.
At Christmas we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, who came to save us from sin. Sin is the worse influence and power of all time. Sin gave birth to death. Rom 5:12 KJV “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so, death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” It is Christmas and everyone is caught up in the festivities. My question is, have you been saved from your sins? You may be celebrating this Christmas with all the excitement, but please solemnly answer this question. Have you been saved from your sins? I am not talking about going to church. Are you free from the influence and power of sin? What do you do when no one is present.?
A man who has been saved from his sins loves God in sincerity. He willingly gives time to prayer and the reading of the Bible. He hates whatever the Bible instructs us to hate. The man who has been saved from his sins loves to tell others about the saving power of Jesus. He prays constantly for men who are bound in their sins. The man who has been set free from his sins loves men, but hates their sin. The man who has been saved from his sins loves to hear about the second coming of Jesus. He is actually ready for His coming.
What was your answers to all the above probing questions? Gal 6:7 KJV” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. You might be celebrating this Christmas with all the excitement. You are a complete stranger to Jesus if you are not personally known to Him. Don’t let your church affiliation deceive you. If your heart tells you that you are not saved from your sins then humbly surrender your life to the saviour today. Make this Christmas a more meaningful one by making Jesus the Lord of your life.
LORD Jesus, you were born to save all men from their sins. I surrender my life to you by accepting forgiveness for all my sins BE the Lord of my life. Help me by your Spirit to serve you for the rest of my days. Amen

Rev. 3:20 KJV “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”
