What Christmas Is All About

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”     John 3:16
We have looked at all the “who’s” in the Christmas story.  Today we are looking at “whosoever”.  God loved us so much that He gave His Son that whosoever believes can be saved.  Are you like the innkeeper who had no room for the coming Savior?  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Put him first in your life and don’t let people or things crowd Him out.  If you have been praying for something for a long time like Zacharias and Elisabeth, don’t quit praying and keep on believing that God can answer your prayers.  Say with Mary, “For with God nothing shall be impossible”, and be willing to let God use you for His purpose and do the impossible in your life.  Look for His coming like Simeon.  Sing His praises like the angels.  Tell others about Him like the shepherds.  Give Him your best like the wise men.  Prepare others to meet Him like John the Baptist.  Believe what the Lord says like Joseph.  We read in Acts 16:30 & 31, “…Sirs, what must I do to be saved?  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
