And of the fullness of Jesus Christ we have all received, and grace for grace. John 1:16
The go-spel word from the Holy Bible is “Receiving” John 20:22
This is a Christmas message from the gospel of John the baptist.
Christmas is all about receiving Jesus Christ into your heart. It is about choosing Life.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16-17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God said: I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that you may have life, and more abundantly. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father. John 10:7-18,28-29
Christmas is about Receiving. God gave the world His son, to save the world from our sins, His son Jesus gave His life in exchange to save us, but have we received His Son Jesus Christ, Have we received the gospel and are we following and walking in the Faith and Spirit of Jesus Christ.
John 1:33 I did not know Jesus, but God who sent me to baptize with water said to me, upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Jesus, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.
John 20:22 After Jesus arose from the dead, Jesus stood in the midst of His disciples Jesus breathed on them and said “Receive the Holy Spirit.
Will you receive Jesus into your heart? It is open season. Jesus loves you and desire to establish a personal relationship with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26;15:26;16:7,13
I am a messenger sent by Jesus to write to all peoples, nations, tribes languages, cultures, customs, traditions and habits And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
