And You Will Forever Be Changed

…for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”  Luke 2:11-14

When a couple has a baby, they soon figure out that life will never be the same for them again.  Their lives will revolve around this tiny baby who needs them to meet his/her every need.  They cannot talk so they cannot tell them what they want or need.  They cannot walk into the kitchen and get a drink when they are thirsty or something to eat when they are hungry.  They don’t even know exactly what they need sometimes.  They are completely dependent on others to meet every need for them.  Usually most of life comes to a halt and meeting the needs of a screaming baby becomes a priority.

A tiny baby, Jesus, was born long ago in Bethlehem who may have seemed just like any other baby at the time.  But Jesus was very different in that He not only changed His parent’s lives; He changed the whole world for all of eternity.  He brought with Him grace, mercy and salvation which equals freedom.  When we invite Jesus Christ into our lives, our lives will never be the same again.  We will be changed forever.  Accept the greatest gift of your life from the Greatest Gift ever! 
If you have every owed a debt and then had it forgiven or paid off, there is no feeling that can compare to that relief.  There is nothing like the crushing power of a debt you can’t pay but Jesus came as a baby, bringing salvation to a lost world.  He grew up and sacrificed His life to pay our debt.  That is debt relief in the highest form. Jesus’ birth can change your life forever.  He brings grace, love and peace, freedom from sin, healing and forgiveness. This Christmas accept the greatest gift you could ever receive and let your life be changed forever. 

Scripture to Claim:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
