This Christmas, Get to Know Your Savior
By Rick Warren

He came to the world that was his own, but his own people did not accept him. But to all who did accept him and believe in him he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:11-12 (NCV)

Nobodys perfect. Thats pretty common knowledge! Ive met thousands of people as Ive traveled around the world, and Ive never met anybody who claimed to be sinless.

I dont measure up to my own standards, much less Gods—and you dont either. We all have flaws, and we all make fumbles.

Thats why you need to know Jesus, the Savior who came to die for your sins.

Heaven is a perfect place—no sorrow, sadness, or sickness. Heaven is beyond your wildest dreams! Heaven is perfect, but you and I are not. If God let imperfect people into heaven, then it wouldnt be a perfect place. If God let us into heaven with all of our imperfections, then heaven would be no better than earth.

But God had a plan: He came to earth at Christmastime. He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to live a perfect life in your place. Then Jesus died to pay for all of your sins so you dont have to. You get to go to heaven by just trusting him. What a deal!

He came to the world that was his own, but his own people did not accept him. But to all who did accept him and believe in him he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:11-12 NCV).

When you trust in Jesus as your Savior, you become part of Gods family, and that family is going to last forever.

God created everybody. God loves everybody. God has a purpose for everybody. But God is only the Father of those who choose to become part of his family by meeting the family requirements: Believe in his Son. Thats the condition.

God made you, but he also saved you. The reason he came at Christmas was to die for all your sins.

I cant think of a better reason to give him your focus and devotion.
