 “...the angel said to them, Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news that will cause great joy to all people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Lu.2:10-11 NIV)

Jesus’ primary purpose in coming to the earth was to make the way possible that mankind could be forgiven, changed and brought into his kingdom. “For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” (Lu. 9:56 NKJV)  The apostles declares “I am not ashamed of the gospel (Good news) because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone that believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.” “For Christ (Jesus) died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” (Ro.1:16, 1 Pet.3:18)  

God so loved the world!!  A song goes this way:”Love found a way to redeem my soul. Love found a way that would make me whole. Love sent my LORD to the cross of shame. Love found a way. O praise his holy name.”  God, who loves us, sent his Son to die for our sins, pay the penalty for us.  Now he offers to us the free gift of forgiveness for all our many sins, and a new life with him forever.

Don’t pass this up. It is not a small thing. It is the most important decision you will make. While we remain here in this life, this wonderful gift is offered to all.  Seize this opportunity. “...everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2:21 NIV) You can do it right now!. When you draw near to God, He will draw near to you.  Begin a new life with Christ!
