21 She will give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins. -Matthew 1:21 BSB
Christmas means the mass on Christ’s day. We understand that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25, but this day is used to remember the birth of Christ and why He came to earth. The name Jesus means the LORD saves. In Matthew 1:23, Jesus has the name Immanuel which that name tells us that God has come down to mankind, and reveals who Jesus is, God in human flesh (John 1:1).
The greatest gift known to men came from God, as stated in John 3:16.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16 BSB
God gave us His Son so that through faith in Jesus, we may receive eternal life.
The gift that God gives is eternal because He is eternal. Those who accept the gift of God by opening their hearts to Jesus Christ will never lose the gift of eternal life, as the word itself means.
My hope for everyone is that all may come to repentance and give their lives to Jesus Christ to follow Him, do His will, and walk according to the Word of God.
