The Christmas Story is how the perfect, holy and glorious God of the universe, in His perfect timing, decided to bring salvation to the world He made. God the Father sent His son to be born of a virgin named Mary in the obscure town of Bethlehem by the miraculous power of the Holy Sprit. Jesus, the Son of Man and the Son of God became human, truly God and truly man simultaneously. He lived for thirty-three years in total sinless and obedient submission to the Father's will, including dying the most horrific death on a Roman cross. At that moment in history, Jesus substituted His righteous life in the place of sinful humanity to absorb the punishment we deserve for rebelling against God and striving to do whatever pleases us, rather than what glorifies Him. The third day following His death, Jesus rose from the dead, thus conquering sin, hell, death, Satan and the penalty of eternal judgement that we all deserve. This good news of God's rescuing sinners is for all who, by the power of the Holy Spirit, turn from their sins, selves and satisfaction with the world, and place trust in Jesus Christ alone as the King of kings and Savior who reconciles us to God Himself.
Come and worship Christ the King!
