Question? Give me some thoughts about the commercialism of Christmas?
As we draw towards Christmas, ALOT of people are bustling about the activities of preparing for Christmas day, all the food and the exchange of gifts, but the one thing that these people FORGET about and ignore either by deliberate or ignorance is the MOST IMPORTANT gift ever given to all mankind for all time, by God the Father in heaven, his Son the Lord Jesus Christ – John 3:16,17.
The Lord Jesus Christ WILLING chose the cross – Hebrews 12:2 to COMPLETELY pay for YOURS, MINE, and THEIR sins – Romans 5:8, to provide the ONLY WAY to heaven – John 14:6 and the BEST PART is that he made it SIMPLE to be receive, JUST BELIEVE, that’s RIGHT, that’s all a person has to do just simply believe – Acts 16:31, believing that the Lord Jesus Christ DIED on the cross was BURIED, and AROSE from the dead, trusting in Christ ALONE as the COMPLETE PAYMENT for their sins – 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.
The moment a person does God then DECLARES that person RIGHTEOUS(Perfect), justified in his sight (positionally as one WITHOUT sin) which God REQUIRES in order for us to enter into his heavenly kingdom and presence.
My plea to all is: do not forget the GREATEST GIFT given and TRUST the Lord Jesus Christ ALONE as YOUR saviour today, if you have not done so already, don’t be like the millions before you and spend eternity in torment in hell BECAUSE you CHOSE to not receive God’s FREE GIFT offered to you – John 3:18, 36.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
A. Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
B. Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
C. BELIEVE(Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell & the lake of fire); but the GIFT of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
ITS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
