Why Christmas? Because of Calvary
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
Why did Jesus come? Luke 19:10 tells us. “…for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
I’ve often said Jesus is not a good way to Heaven, not the best way to Heaven, but the only way to Heaven. When you say that, a lot of people get their hackles up, but I still want to tell you, apart from Jesus, there is no salvation. He’s not just “one more Savior.” He is the solitary Savior, the only Savior.
Now, if He’s not the only Savior, He’s no Savior at all, because He said He was the only one. And if He’s not the only one, then He’s a liar, and a liar is nobody’s Savior.
I’ve got some wonderful news for you: He can save anyone. Because of the birthday of Jesus, each year you are one year closer to Heaven, one year closer to seeing His dear face. Jesus, the Son of God, left Heaven, came to this earth, suffered, bled, died, and walked out of that grave a living, risen Savior. He’s the one who sent me to tell you that He loves you.
He wants to save you and He will save you today if you’ll give Him your heart. If you have not already done so, do it today. Pray, “Jesus, I give You my heart. I believe You died to save me. You will save me if I trust in You. I do trust You, Jesus. I'm trusting You today.”
