Christ For The Masses Part 1

Yet another 365days of the celebration of the birth of the Christ, the man who changes the course of life. The Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and Christian all enjoy this holiday. What then is unique about Jesus Christ. This man Jesus, healed the sick, raised the dead, feed the hungry, and blessed the poor and went back to heaven to meet His father. This man, Jesus, broke the law of economic where he feeds 5000 with five loaves and two fishes. He broke the law of physics when He walked on water. He broke the law of biology, He conceded without the combination of a man and woman. He broke the law of chemistry, He turned water to wine. He broke the law of finance, He paid His tax with the money that was retrieved from the mouth of a fish. He broke the law of mathematics, an infinite number of people, languages, kingdoms, and tribes subscribe to His gospel around the globe. He is the King of kings, He is the Lord of lords, He is the beginning and the end, the I am that I am. The Almighty that supersedes all might He is the all-knowing that knows the number of sand on the seashore. He is the only Wise God, He has no limit because He is in charge of all things. He forgives sin because He loves people. He is the richest yet; He became poor that through His poverty, you might be rich. He knows the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end.

Are people happy for the season or happy for the reason? No doubt this season is the season. Some say there is a reason for this season, others said it is just the regular season, but I say Jesus Christ is the reason for the season. What then different Christmas from another holiday? What propel people to buy a gift that will drop in value in less than two weeks? Parents are ready to max out their credit cards to buy that newer dresses for their Children. Airports are full of people who are prepared to fly out and spend Christmas time with friends and families. In this same season, some forget who they are and make five minutes silly enjoyment decision, that will cause them a lifetime regret. The question why Christmas?

I believe Christmas is not intended for what people think, but for what God means. Form the scripture, Christmas is simply the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Personal Savior. One of the significant prophets before His birth prophesied, saying, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…” (Is. 9:6). The above phrase, “For unto us…” I break down the Christmas to be Christ For the Masses. For unto us, a child is born (The birth of Jesus), and unto us, a son is given (the savior is given to rescue our soul). That was why John said, Jesus was the true Light, He was in the world, and the world knew him not, He came unto his own, but as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God (John 1:9-12). He was born as Jesus, He grew to be Christ to love the masses and pay for their sin. Today is the celebration of our high priest who understands our pain, forgives our sins, identifies with our shortcomings, and carries our burden as if they were His, only us to reign with Him in heaven.
